This comprehensive introduction to principles underlying laser light scattering focuses on time dependence of fluctuations in fluid systems It also serves as introduction to theory of time correlation functions, with chapters on projection operator techniques in statistical mechanics Overtext figuresedition

8 thoughts on “Dynamic Light Scattering: With Applications to Chemistry, Biology, and Physics (Dover Books on Physics)”

I purchased this book to get a background on light scattering used for particle sizing techniques Contrary to the glowing reviews from other buyers, I found it rather impenetrable 50 75% of the text is dense mathematics which is used as an explanation in itself rather than in support of a written description and explanation as to observed effects If your not afraid of the maths then this could be the book for you, but if your not already a specialist in light scattering, keep looking.

Dynamic Light Scattering is a classic text, that presents a comprehensive and in depth overview of the underlying physics and principles of DLS The description is developed with the associated mathematics of fluctuations and time correlation functions, as well as various physical aspects of Brownian Motion Examples drawn from physics, chemistry and biology are used to illustrate the usefullness of DLS in studying a diverse range of problems including cell motility, macromolecular dynamics, dynamics of anisotropics objects rod like particles, viruses , electrolytic solutions, etc The book is ESSENTIAL for everyone with interest in 1 dynamics of complex fluids 2 Brownian Motion of particles and 3 Single Molecule Imaging The text is a beautifully written treatise on various applications of DLS, with a very insightful commentary on how various dynamics is detected by light, how underlying structure and relaxations translate to observable, how observables can be deduced by mathematical principles based on statistical mechanics including non equilibrium thermodynamics This is a fairly advanced text, so I would advise someone to get a soft introduction to his her topic of choice polymers, gels, rods, colloids, cells, polyelectrolytes, etc and basic statistical mechanics before picking this text Being a Dover publication, the book is priced cheaper than it ought to be , and hence must make its way to the shelf of people who have any lasting interest in DLS The book by Wyn Brown is a useful supplementary text and includes modern references, but comes at a high price This book is an exercise in the mathematics of correlation functions, and associated hydrodynamics equations, and definitely requires concerted effort to become beneficial to the reader.

I find that Dover s books are simply excellent and this text is no exception The order of the material in the book is logical starting with the basics of autocorrelation to how Maxwell s equations lead to intensity of scattered radiation Then, that crucial leap from the theory of scattering to how radiation is measured by different detectors is made and what they lead to in terms of correlation functions The book expands on the basics of ideal, non interacting isotropic scatters to complex situations Many references are provided Since DLS has applications in protein dynamics, I used this text as background.

Kindle formatting is really not suited for scientific books especially those with a lot of formulas.Lost interest to read this book with awful formula looking.I want to request refund

lots of theory, a few practical applications, and fewer instrumental details this is a dover book, but apparently has had some corrections applied by the authors this book arrived in the condition described.

Dal momento dell ordine la spedizione stata rapida e efficiente Il libro mi stato consegnato in ottime condizioni.Giudizio pi che positivo

Good book
