Polymers, Liquid Crystals, and Low-Dimensional Solids edited by Norman H. March, Mario P. Tosi.

This book deals with three related areas having both fundamental and technological interest. In the first part, the objective is to provide a bird's­ eye view on structure in polymeric solids. This is then complemented by a chapter, directly technological in its emphasis, dealing with the influ...
