Database:WorldCat
Summary:
"This textbook for graduate students in physics or chemical physics begins with a discussion of chemical bonds, interactions between particles, and the resulting molecular arrangements. The concept of order parameter leads to a discussion of phase transitions, elasticity, and dynamics, followed by a review of fractals and growth phenomena. A significant portion of the book deals with defects of topological nature
