A selection of papers by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes - 1991 Nobel Prize winner in Physics - which have had a long-lasting impact on our understanding of condensed matter. Ideas on polymers, liquid crystals and interfaces are described. The author has added some afterthoughts to the main papers.
Capillarity and wetting phenomena : drops, bubbles, pearls, waves by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes ( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and French and held by 527 libraries worldwide
The study of capillarity is in the midst of a veritable explosion. What is offered here is not a comprehensive review of the latest research but rather a compendium of principles designed for the undergraduate student and for readers interested in the physics underlying these phenomena. -- Product Description.
Fragile objects : soft matter, hard science, and the thrill of discovery by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes ( Book )
14 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 482 libraries worldwide
Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, Hitchcock professor at College de France, Nobel Laureate in physics, presents a review of soap films, from I. Newton to K. Mysels. In the second part he considers one special problem: the dynamics of the transition from colored films to black films. This has an important analog: the dynamics of drying for non-wettable surfaces, where recent experiments are available and are described.

Giant molecules : here, there, and everywhere by A. I︠U︡ Grosberg ( Book )
3 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 188 libraries worldwide
This book describes the basic facts, concepts and ideas of polymer physics in simple, yet scientifically accurate, terms. In both scientific and historic contexts, the book shows how the subject of polymers is fascinating, as it is behind most of the wonders of living cell machinery as well as most of the newly developed materials. No mathematics is used in the book beyond modest high school algebra and a bit of freshman calculus, yet very sophisticated concepts are introduced and explained, ranging from scaling and reptations to protein folding and evolution. The new edition includes an extended section on polymer preparation methods, discusses knots formed by molecular filaments, and presents new and updated materials on such contemporary topics as single molecule experiments with DNA or polymer properties of proteins and their roles in biological evolution.

P.G. de Gennes' impact on science ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
This publication, in two volumes, is devoted to the scientific impact of the work of Nobel Laureate, Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century. It covers the important fields for which de Gennes was renowned : solid state (magnetism and superconductivity), macroscopic random media and percolation, supersolids, liquid crystals, polymers, adhesion and friction, and biophysics. The book brings together internationally renowned experts to contribute their perspectives on the significance of de Gennes' works. They have each selected a definitive paper, which gives the state of the field at the time the paper was published, highlights the paper's importance and provides an analysis of the development of the field right up to the modern day. The insightful perspectives of these scientists make the book both unique and intriguing.
