  3. Extra-Solar Planets

    The Detection, Formation, Evolution and Dynamics of Planetary Systems

    Edited by Bonnie Steves, Martin Hendry, Andrew C. Cameron

    Series: Scottish Graduate Series

    Since the discovery of the first exoplanet orbiting a main sequence star in 1995, nearly 500 planets have been detected, with this number expected to increase dramatically as new ground-based planetary searches begin to report their results. Emerging techniques offer the tantalizing possibility of...

  7. Soft Condensed Matter Physics in Molecular and Cell Biology

    Edited by W.C.K. Poon, David Andelman

    Series: Scottish Graduate Series

    Soft condensed matter physics, which emerged as a distinct branch of physics in the 1990s, studies complex fluids: liquids in which structures with length scale between the molecular and the macroscopic exist. Polymers, liquid crystals, surfactant solutions, and colloids fall into this category....
