About the Authors
  • This book reviews one-dimensional reactions, dynamics, diffusion, and adsorption. In studies of complex systems in biology, chemistry and physics, understanding can be gained by analytical and numerical analyses of simple models. This book presents review articles at an advanced research level, describing results for one-dimensional models of dynamical processes such as chemical reactions and catalysis, kinetic Ising models, phase separation and cluster growth, monolayer and multilayer adsorption with added relaxation, surface and hard-core particle dynamics, diffusional transport, and random systems. It also covers experimental results for systems ranging from chemical reactions to adsorption and reactions on polymer chains, steps on crystalline surfaces, and DNA. All chapters are written by leading scientists in the field. They present a self-contained review of this subject that will guide readers from basic concepts, ideas, methods and models to the forefront of research. Researchers in physics, chemistry and biology will find this book invaluable.

    • A modern coherent overview of one-dimensional methods in statistical physics and theoretical chemistry
    • Top-rank contributors
    • Topic of wide current interest

    "The structure of this book - written by the leading specialists in the field - is well adapted to offer an overview of the current research areas....Due to the recent "hot topics" approached, as well as to its systematic, clear and rigorous structure, this book will be of interest both to graduate students and researchers in theoretical and experimental physics and chemistry, applied mathematics, and biology." mathematical reviews clippings 98h
