Review from previous edition '... the book provides an excellent overview of our current knowledge of liquid foams and shows the directions of future research efforts. It would be an excellent introduction to the subject for any novice and an engaging read for experts in the field. This book is a timely addition to the literature and should become a classic text... An essential item for every library, it is strongly recommended.' Angewandte Chemie'... the authors' coherent account will benefit researchers at all levels. In addition, Physics of Foams includes many beautiful photographs and computer-generated illustrations of foam structures... that will ensure the continued fascination of all readers.' Science'... the book represents a major advance. It is written in a pleasant style and is accessible to a wide population of physicists.' Physics TodayOrdinary foams such as the head of a glass of beer and more exotic ones such as solid metallic foams, raise many questions for the physicist and have attracted a substantial research community in recent years. The book describes the results of extensive experiments , computer simulations and theories in an authoritative yet formal style, making ample use of illustrations and photographs.It would be an excellent introduction to the subject for any novice and an engaging read for experts in the field. This book is a timely addition to the literature and should become a classic text.
