This volume contains a selection of important papers by P-G de Gennes (1991 Nobel Prize Winner in Physics) which have had a long-lasting impact on our understanding of condensed matter (solid state physics, liquid crystals, polymers, interfaces, wetting and adhesion). A typical example is the original article on qreptationq of polymer chains. The author has added some qafterthoughtsq to the main papers (explaining their successes or weaknesses), and the current views on each special problem. Complex systems (polymers or granular matters, etc) are explained without heavy calculations -- using simple scaling laws as the main tool.If we set p~AH/aamp;T (where -AH is a cluster energy) and assume AH ~ independent of T, we have T~l/p, and the phase diagram has exactly the structure of Figure 2b: thus clustering can generate a 9 behaviour. The word cluster may, however, anbsp;...
