Including colloidal dispersions, polymer melts, solutions with viscoelasticity, and liquid crystals, soft condensed matter are that class of materials that are neither simple liquids nor crystalline solids. Jones (physics, U. of Sheffield, UK) introduces the physics of the study of the structural and mechanical properties of soft matter, using tools of statistical mechanics. Processes of cross-linking, self-assembly, and percolation are examined. A final chapter examines the application of earlier concepts to the study of biological matter.
