Dynamics of self-organized and self-assembled structures

Author: Rashmi C Desai; Raymond Kapral
Publisher: Cambridge, UK ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2009.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Physical and biological systems driven out of equilibrium may spontaneously evolve to form spatial structures. In some systems molecular constituents may self-assemble to produce complex ordered structures. This book describes how such pattern formation processes occur and how they can be modeled.
