Smectic and lamellar liquid crystals are 3-dimensional layered constructions within which each one layer behaves as a two-dimensional fluid. as a result of their lowered dimensionality they've got specific actual homes and demanding theoretical descriptions, and are the topic of a lot present examine. One- and Two-Dimensional Fluids: homes of Smectic, Lamellar and Columnar Liquid Crystals bargains a entire overview of those stages and their purposes. The e-book info the elemental buildings and houses of 1- and two-dimensional fluids and the character of section transitions. The later chapters think about the optical, magnetic, and electric homes of detailed constructions, together with uniformly and non-uniformly aligned anisotropic motion pictures, lyotropic lamellar platforms, helical and chiral constructions, and natural anisotropic fabrics. themes additionally comprise usual and faulty positive factors, magnetic susceptibility, and electric conductivity. The ebook concludes with a evaluate of present and capability purposes within the monitors, fabrics technology, and biomedical industries. instead of targeting one point of liquid crystal learn, this booklet presents a cohesive precis of the homes and purposes of smectic, lamellar, and columnar liquid crystals. One- and Two-Dimensional Fluids is a invaluable source for these operating with liquid crystals each day and an efficient origin for rookies to the sector.

This publication is an advent to polymers that makes a speciality of the synthesis, constitution, and homes of the person molecules that represent polymeric fabrics. The authors technique the subject material from a molecular foundation and thoroughly increase ideas from an common place to begin. Their dialogue comprises an summary of polymer synthesis, an advent to the idea that and dimension of molecular weight, an in depth view of polymer kinetics and the 3-dimensional structure of polymers, and a statistical description of sickness.
This publication gathers a suite of reprints at the Hubbard version. the main contributions to the topic due to the fact its beginning are incorporated, with the purpose of supplying all scientists engaged on the version and its functions with easy accessibility to the correct literature. The ebook is split into 5 components. The introductory half is anxious with the actual starting place and motivations of the version, and incorporates a number of typically ancient papers.
