Summarising recent research on the physics of complex liquids, this in-depth analysis examines the topic of complex liquids from a modern perspective, addressing experimental, computational and theoretical aspects of the field. Selecting only the most interesting contemporary developments in this rich field of research, the authors present multiple examples including aggregation, gel formation and glass transition, in systems undergoing percolation, at criticality, or in supercooled states. Connecting experiments and simulation with key theoretical principles, and covering numerous systems including micelles, micro-emulsions, biological systems, and cement pastes, this unique text is an invaluable resource for graduate students and researchers looking to explore and understand the expanding field of complex fluids.Read more
- Analyses the recent developments in the field of complex liquids

"This is an interesting book … [it] is rich in theory and experiments and can be used as a text for graduate students."
Prabhat Kumar Mahanti, Zentralblatt MATHSee more reviews
"… an interesting and rich book that would be very useful to all those who intend to revise or deepen their knowledge about the validity of assumptions, approximations and deductions that constitute the background of scattering theories and their limits. It is richly illustrated by numerous figures …"
