Item description for Simple Views on Condensed Matter by Pierre-Gilles De Gennes...
This volume contains a selection of important papers by P-G de Gennes (1991 Nobel Prize Winner in Physics) which have had a long lasting impact on our understanding of condensed matter (solid state physics, liquid crystals, polymers, interfaces, wetting and adhesion). A typical example is the original article on "reptation" of polymer chains. The author has added some "after thoughts" following the main papers explaining their successes or weaknesses, and the current views on each special problem.
