Macromolecules in Solution and Brownian Relativity illustrates the recent picture of statistical physics of polymers and polymer solutions that emerges from some paradigms of contemporary science joint together. Among its principal aims are discussing the consequences of a novel self-diffusion theory, which benefits from an extension towards relativistic-like principles, and the generalization of usual concepts met in polymer science in terms of geometry alone. The monograph gives the whole fundamentals necessary to handle the view proposed, which is set in the final chapters. All the formers see about to provide the reader with a comprehensive treatation of the necessary fundamentals of classical, relativistic, quantum and statistical mechanics. Among the most important mechanical theories ever developed, a chapter on the Brownian movement and another on macromolecules prepare the ground that is specific to face universality and scaling behaviors in polymer solutions. The scope of the book is therefore two-fold: On the one hand, it wishes to involve the readers and scholars into a new research on polymer physics and chemistry. On the other, to get close chemical physicists and physical chemists to disciplines which, traditionally, are far from their direct fields of interest.
S.A. Mezzasalma is a contract professor and researcher at the University of Trieste and, in particular, a theoretical chemical physicist of soft condensed matter. His main research activity covered a number of topics in macromolecular, colloid and interface sciences, producing several tens of single-authored publications. Author of a recent book, “Macromolecules in Solution and Brownian Relativity”, published within the Interface Science and Technology Series of Academic Press & Elsevier (2008). He lately started to work on several issues in nanoscience and supramolecular chemistry, and collaborate within the EC Advanced Grant “Carbonanobridge”, at the cutting edge between chemical and biological physics.
