Nuclear Spin Relaxation in Liquids Book Review:

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is widely used across many fields of science because of the rich data it produces, and some of the most valuable data come from studies of nuclear spin relaxation in solution. The first edition of this book, published more than a decade ago, provided an accessible and cohesive treatment of the field. The present second edition is a significant update, covering important new developments in recent years. Collecting relaxation theory, experimental techniques, and illustrative applications into a single volume, this book clarifies the nature of the phenomenon, shows how to study it and explains why such studies are worthwhile. Coverage ranges from basic to rigorous theory and from simple to sophisticated experimental methods. Topics include cross-relaxation, multispin phenomena, relaxation studies of molecular dynamics and structure and special topics such as relaxation in systems with quadrupolar nuclei, in paramagnetic systems and in long-living spin states. Avoiding overly demanding mathematics, the authors explain spin relaxation in a manner that anyone with a familiarity with NMR can follow. The focus is on illustrating and explaining the physical nature of relaxation phenomena. Nuclear Spin Relaxation in Liquids: Theory, Experiments and Applications, 2nd edition, provides useful supplementary reading for graduate students and is a valuable reference for NMR spectroscopists, whether in chemistry, physics or biochemistry.

Statistical Mechanics of Liquids and Solutions Book Review:

The statistical mechanical theory of liquids and solutions is a fundamental area of physical sciences with important implications for many industrial applications. This book shows how you can start from basic laws for the interactions and motions of microscopic particles and calculate how macroscopic systems of these particles behave, thereby explaining properties of matter at the scale that we perceive. Using this microscopic, molecular approach, the text emphasizes clarity of physical explanations for phenomena and mechanisms relevant to fluids, addressing the structure and behavior of liquids and solutions under various conditions. A notable feature is the author’s treatment of forces between particles that include nanoparticles, macroparticles, and surfaces. The book also provides an expanded, in-depth treatment of polar liquids and electrolytes.

Theory of Liquids and Other Disordered Media Book Review:

This set of lectures provides an introduction to the structure, thermodynamics and dynamics of liquids, binary solutions and polymers at a level that will enable graduate students and non-specialist researchers to understand more specialized literature and to possibly start their own work in this field. Part I starts with the introduction of distribution functions, which describe the statistical arrangements of atoms or molecules in a simple liquid. The main concepts involve mean field theories like the Perkus-Yevick theory and the random phase approximation, which relate the forces to the distribution functions. In order to provide a concise, self-contained text, an understanding of the general statistical mechanics of an interacting many-body system is assumed. The fact that in a classic liquid the static and dynamic aspects of such a system can be discussed separately forms the basis of the two-fold structure of this approach. In order to allow polymer melts and solutions to be discussed, a short chapter acquaints readers with scaling concepts by discussing random walks and fractals. Part II of the lecture series is essentially devoted to the presentation of the dynamics of simple and complex liquids in terms of the generalized hydrodynamics concept, such as that introduced by Mori and Zwanzig. A special topic is a comprehensive introduction of the liquid-glass transition and its discussion in terms of a mode-coupling theory.

A Concise Course on the Theory of Classical Liquids Book Review:

This short primer offers non-specialist readers a concise, yet comprehensive introduction to the field of classical fluids – providing both fundamental information and a number of selected topics to bridge the gap between the basics and ongoing research. In particular, hard-sphere systems represent a favorite playground in statistical mechanics, both in and out of equilibrium, as they represent the simplest models of many-body systems of interacting particles, and at higher temperature and densities they have proven to be very useful as reference systems for real fluids. Moreover, their usefulness in the realm of soft condensed matter has become increasingly recognized – for instance, the effective interaction among (sterically stabilized) colloidal particles can be tuned to almost perfectly match the hard-sphere model. These lecture notes present a brief, self-contained overview of equilibrium statistical mechanics of classical fluids, with special applications to both the structural and thermodynamic properties of systems made of particles interacting via the hard-sphere potential or closely related model potentials. In particular it addresses the exact statistical-mechanical properties of one-dimensional systems, the issue of thermodynamic (in)consistency among different routes in the context of several approximate theories, and the construction of analytical or semi-analytical approximations for the structural properties. Written pedagogically at the graduate level, with many figures, tables, photographs, and guided end-of-chapter exercises, this introductory text benefits students and newcomers to the field alike.

Statistical Physics of Crystals and Liquids Book Review:

This important book presents a unified formulation from first principles of the Hamiltonian and statistical mechanics of metallic and insulating crystals, amorphous solids, and liquids. Extensive comparison of theory and experiment provides an accurate understanding of the statistical properties of phonons, electrons, and phonon–phonon and electron–phonon interactions in elemental crystals and liquids. Questions are posed along the following lines: What is the “best” theory for a given property? How accurate is a good theory? What information is gained by a comparison of theory and experiment? How accurate is a good experiment? Contents:Condensed Matter HamiltonianStatistical MechanicsLattice DynamicsStatistical Mechanics of CrystalsLiquid Dynamics and Statistical MechanicsPhase Transitions and Nonequilibrium Processes Readership: Researchers, academics and graduate students in condensed matter physics. Keywords:Condensed Matter Hamiltonian;Statistical Mechanics;Lattice Dynamics;Crystals;Liquid Dynamics;Phase Transitions;Metastable StatesReviews:“This is a valuable and clearly written book in an important area of condensed matter theory. There is extensive contact between theoretical predictions and experiments. For both students and young research workers there are useful collections of problems which lead to further insight into the area covered. Quantitative equations of state are given prominence.”Norman H March Oxford University “This is an authoritative account of the physics and thermodynamics behind an understanding of the equation of state. It concentrates on elements and the use of pseudopotential perturbation theory for the simple metals provides insight and a basis for computer simulations. The account combines careful theoretical analyses, and Local-Density-Theory results, with interpretation of the best experimental data available and may be unique in incorporating the liquid, as well as the crystalline state. The very complete set of problems included would make it very appropriate as the text for a general course on the equation of state.”Walt Harrison Stanford University “Whatever the author does, he does it first class. His book is something we use to gauge excellence in the field, and I have no doubt that this one will be no exception. But this book is different from other books he wrote. It is more personal in that he has not hesitated to express his personal views strongly, but in a scholarly fashion.”Y Horie Los Alamos National Laboratory “This is a book of condensed matter physics that gives equal emphasis to solids and liquids. The author focuses on the equation of state of the simple elements and reviews the methods for passing from the Hamiltonian through statistical mechanics to the equation of state of the solid and liquid and the computation of the melting curve. For the reader who wants an introduction to the capability of modern statistical physics for accurate prediction of thermodynamic functions, this is the book.”David Young Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory “This book, in my mind, represents an extremely powerful resource to any researcher working in condensed matter physics and especially equation of state theory. It is clear from 'Statistical Physics of Crystals and Liquids' that Dr Wallace has a special gift of taking complex physics concepts and explaining them with the greatest of clarity. His ability clearly distinguishes this book from those written by more novice authors … In summary, I believe this book should be highly marketed as I expect that there is a large condensed matter community that would benefit from reading it.”Brad Clements Los Alamos National Laboratory “The three investigated subjects, only fragments of which are covered in other textbooks and research treatises, make this book a very useful one for specialists in statistical mechanics and structure of matter.”Zentralblatt MATH “… the book comprises a brisk overview of solids that reaches timely topics of nonequilibrium processes … its structure lends itself well to being used as an instructional text in either an advanced undergraduate course or a graduate treatment of the subject … The review of statistical mechanics is straightforward to anyone with prior exposure to the subject, and is nearly complete … Wallace has done an excellent job of achieving the goals set out in the introduction of the book in a format that is clean and easy to read with a notation that is not confusing.”MRS Bulletin “This book covers ‘equation of state’ but also atomic dynamics. In these fields it offers a useful summary of methods and results, which prove how successful modern computational methods have become.”Contemporary Physics

Many Particle Physics Book Review:

This textbook is for a course in advanced solid-state theory. It is aimed at graduate students in their third or fourth year of study who wish to learn the advanced techniques of solid-state theoretical physics. The method of Green's functions is introduced at the beginning and used throughout. Indeed, it could be considered a book on practical applications of Green's functions, although I prefer to call it a book on physics. The method of Green's functions has been used by many theorists to derive equations which, when solved, provide an accurate numerical description of many processes in solids and quantum fluids. In this book I attempt to summarize many of these theories in order to show how Green's functions are used to solve real problems. My goal, in writing each section, is to describe calculations which can be compared with experiments and to provide these comparisons whenever available. The student is expected to have a background in quantum mechanics at the level acquired from a graduate course using the textbook by either L. I. Schiff, A. S. Davydov, or I. Landau and E. M. Lifshiftz. Similarly, a prior course in solid-state physics is expected, since the reader is assumed to know concepts such as Brillouin zones and energy band theory. Each chapter has problems which are an important part of the lesson; the problems often provide physical insights which are not in the text. Sometimes the answers to the problems are provided, but usually not.

Models for Polymeric and Anisotropic Liquids Book Review:

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.
