Most widely held works by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes
Simple views on condensed matter by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes( )

29 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Petit point : a candid portrait on the aberrations of science by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes( )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and French and held by 1,665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Captures the lives of personalities from both the academic and industrial world in bite-size stories
Giant molecules : here, and there, and everywhere-- by A. I︠U︡ Grosberg( )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 1,603 WorldCat member 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
The physics of liquid crystals by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes( Book )

80 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in English and Russian and held by 1,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Superconductivity of metals and alloys by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes( )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawn from the author's introductory course at the University of Orsay, Superconductivity of Metals and Alloys is a classic work that provides a basic knowledge of superconductivity for both experimentalists and theoreticians. The notes begin with an elementary discussion of magnetic properties of Type I and Type II superconductors. The microscopic theory is then built up in the Bogolubov language of self-consistent fields: this is powerful enough to cover the situations where the order parameter is modulated in space; it also retains some of the physical insight which we associate with one-particle wave functions. At this stage, the properties of alloys are systematically discussed in parallel with those of the pure metals. This text provides the classic, fundamental basis for any work in the field of superconductivity."--Jacket

Scaling concepts in polymer physics by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes( Book )

Capillarity and wetting phenomena : drops, bubbles, pearls, waves by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes( Book )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 536 WorldCat member 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
Fragile objects : soft matter, hard science, and the thrill of discovery by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After he received the Nobel Prize in physics in 1991, students, schools, and science clubs throughout the French-speaking world invited Pierre-Gilles de Gennes to lecture about his work in science, about the work of a scientist, and about the role of science in the modern world. This absorbing and beautifully written book emerged from those lectures and from the lively discussions, probing questions, and spontaneous replies that followed
Introduction to polymer dynamics by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, based on lectures given at the Polytechnic of Milan, gives a broad overview of the field of polymer dynamics. In these lectures the aim is to stress the fundamental concepts of the behaviour of polymers without drawing on the more advanced mathematical formalism which often obscures the natural elegance of the subject matter. Professor De Gennes is one of the most distinguished workers in the field of material science. Therefore this book will be welcomed by both the experienced researcher in the area and the interested layman. It will be of particular value to graduate students
Soft interfaces : the 1994 Dirac memorial lecture by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes( Book )

19 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac, one of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, died in 1984. Dirac's college, St John's of Cambridge, generously endowed annual lectures to be held at Cambridge University in his memory. This volume contains a much expanded version of the 1994 Dirac Lecture by Nobel Laureate Pierre Gilles de Gennes. The book presents an impressionistic tour of the physics of soft interfaces. Full of insight and interesting asides, it not only provides an accessible introduction to this topic, but also lays down many markers and signposts for interesting new research possibilities. The text begins with a brief discussion of wetting and dewetting and then goes on to consider the dynamics of different types of interface before considering adhesion and polymer/polymer welding
