Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

The authors have produced an excellent textbook targeted at the final year undergraduate or the postgraduate student ... as a book on modelling it shows an insight and clarity which will make it an invaluable guide for teaching at a high level in any polymer physics or polymer science department. (Polymer International)

Nice book, contents well developed ... Well organized (Professor Aurora Perez Gramatges,Pontificia Universidade Catolica Puc-Rio)

A good selection of 'problems' is collated at the end of each chapter for keen scholars to practice and to solve ... I am sure the book is of great use for teaching, learning and researching into polymer physics. (Materials World)

Any student with a working knowledge of calculus, physics, and chemistry will be able to read this book. The essential tools of the polymer physical chemist or engineer are derived in this book without skipping any steps ... In all cases, attention is restricted to concepts that are firmly entrenched in the field. (The DKI Literature Database on Polymers)

The book is intended as a textbook, however it provides more than what is expected from a classical textbook for undergraduates. (Chemphyschem)

The book in general greatly benefits from high-quality illustrations. The illustrations are very intuitive, and summarizing the basic concepts. (Chemphyschem)

The organization of the book is clear, assisting the reader, who is entering the subject. Extensive and accurate indexing assists the reader, who intends to use the book as a reference book. (Chemphyschem)

This book is one of the rare ones, in which the starting knowledge mentioned in the introduction to the reader seems to be sufficient for the understanding of the book. (Chemphyschem)

...the book's coverage is excellent... [it] is well written and opens up its subject matter in a very accessible way... I am pleased to have it on my bookshelf... and would expect most institutions to have a copy on their library shelves. (Times Higher Education Supplement)

An excellent monograph to introduce basic polymer physics to graduate-level students. (Wei Wang, Institute of Chemistry)

Présentation de l'éditeur

This is a polymer physics textbook for upper level undergraduates and first year graduate students. Any student with a working knowledge of calculus, physics and chemistry should be able to read this book. The essential tools of the polymer physical chemist or engineer are derived in this book without skipping any steps. The book is a self-contained treatise that could also serve as a useful reference for scientists and engineers working with polymers. While no prior knowledge of polymers is assumed, the book goes far beyond introductory polymer texts in the scope of what is covered. The fundamental concepts required to fully understand polymer melts, solutions and gels in terms of both static structure and dynamics are explained in detail. Problems at the end of each Chapter provide the reader with the opportunity to apply what has been learned to practice. The book is divided into four parts. After an introduction in Chapter 1, where the necessary concepts from a first course on polymers are summarized, the conformations of single polymer chains are treated in Part 1. Part 2 deals with the thermodynamics of polymer solutions and melts, including the conformations of chains in those states. Part 3 applies the concepts of Part 2 to the formation and properties of polymer networks. Finally, Part 4 explains the essential aspects of how polymers move in both melt and solution states. In all cases, attention is restricted to concepts that are firmly entrenched in the field.

Current and comprehensive textbook 7 novembre 2007
Par Vivek Sharma - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Polymer Physics by Michael Rubinstein and Raplh Colby is a fascinating introduction to the realm of polymer statics, dynamics and phase behavior. It embodies the depth of Flory's classic text on Principals of Polymer Chemistry, classic delight of de Gennes' Scaling concepts in Polymers and the rigor of Theory of Polymer Dynamics by Doi and Edwards. The authors manage to do this with a textbook authority and clarity, which definitely makes this book a definite buy for anyone interested in polymer physics.

The book has four main sections. The first part talks about the polymer statics: ideal and real chains and how their size and size dependent properties are characterized. Then comes thermodynamics of polymer blends and solutions, which includes a discussion on polymer brushes and adsorption of chains. The authors devote the third section to networks and gels and this part includes a very thorough discussion of gelation, rubber elasticity and swelling. The last section is devoted to the polymer dyanmics, where chain models and polymer relaxation ideas are developed and discussed. The last two sections of the book cover topics which are of immense current interest, and have had original and critical contributions from the authors. Most highly recommended, both for beginners and for experts.

Detailed but Still Clear 9 janvier 2007

I am a Chemist working on applied R&D in the oil refining industry. I bought this text as I needed a good understanding on polymer containing fluids (viscosity, solutions behavior). It is very well written and quite detailed. It is not the sort of text that tries to introduce excessive and not useful mathematical details but is anyway very accurate. I advice it also for professionals

The book is an excellent introduction to statistical polymer physics.
Its great strength is that it offers a mathematical treatment of polymer
physics with a minimum of mathematics i.e. only dimensional analysis and simple
ordinary differential equations. In addition, one needs to have an introductory
course in equilibrium statistical physics (statistical thermodynamics).

It is valuable to both academics and industrial practitioners, since it represents
a very complete picture of polymeric solutions, gels and networks
given with remarkable intuition. Certainly it does not go deep into
more advanced analytic (e.g. functional integral or numerical approaches),
but it is a necessary background to these fields. Recently, there has been
renewed interest for the development of relativistic Brownian dynamics.
This text is a must read for those working in the latter field and seek
a deep background in the classical theory.

The only negative aspect of this book has nothing to do with the authors,
but with OUP that produce such difficult to use book formats. I do not
understand why the book has to be so large in dimensions making any
handling difficult and awkward. I hope that soon is reissued in a more
compact and usable format that is made for the joy of reading. In this respect,
it must be noted that the actual book producer (Antony Rowe Ltd) did a
VERY poor job and my book disintegrated within a few months. OUP seems on the
way of no return (e-books).

As a polymer physicist, among other things (mechanical engineer/tribologist) I can tell you that this is must for anybody trying to understand polymer physics. Whether you are a scientist or worked in applied sciences (engineering) this will make a great text book and reference.
