Models for Polymeric and Anisotropic Liquids - Lecture Notes in Physics 675 (Hardback)Martin Kroger (author)
- We can order this
Models should be as simple as possible, but no simpler. For the physics of polymeric liquids, whose relevant lengths and time scales are out of reach for first principles calculations, this means that we have to choose a minimum set of sufficiently detailed descriptors such as architecture (linear, ring, branched), connectivity, semiflexibility, stretchability, excluded volume, and hydrodynamic interaction. These 'universal' fluids allow the prediction of material properties under external flow- or electrodynamic fields, the results being expressed in terms of reference units, specific for any particular chosen material. This book provides an introduction to the kinetic theory and computer simulation methods needed to handle these models and to interpret the results. Also included are a number of sample applications and computer codes.

From the reviews:
"The book reviews the rheological models for polymeric liquids or more generally liquids exhibiting anisotropy. ... it mainly addresses to people well introduced in the subject. On the other hand, it manages to illustrate many different aspects of this complex theory in little more than two hundred pages." (Antonio Fasano, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1102 (4), 2007)
