Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198505515, Hardcover)Foams, whether on a glass of beer or formed from solid metal, raise challenging questions for the physicist and have been the subject of substantial research in recent years. This introduction to the physics of foams describes a number of experiments, computer simulations, and theories. It adopts an authoritative yet informal style, making ample use of illustrations and photographs and emphasizes liquids while describing some recent work on solid foams. It uses simple, idealized models to discuss a range of topics, including structure, drainage, rheology, conductivity and coarsening. It requires a minimum of mathematics and is careful to present the theory and experiment together at every stage.
