Liquid crystals, polymers and polymer liquid crystals are soft condensed matter systems of major technological and scientific interest. An understanding of the macroscopic properties of these complex systems and of their many and interesting peculiarities at the molecular level can nowadays only be attained using computer simulations and statistical mechanical theories. Both in the Liquid Crystal and Polymer fields a considerable amount of simulation work has been done in the last few years with various classes of models at different special resolutions, ranging from atomistic to molecular and coarse-grained lattice models. Each of the two fields has developed its own set of tools and specialized procedures and the book aims to provide a state of the art review of the computer simulation studies of polymers and liquid crystals. This is of great importance in view of a potential cross-fertilization between these connected areas which is particularly apparent for a number of experimental systems like, e.g. polymer liquid crystals and anisotropic gels where the different fields necessarily merge. An effort has been made to assess the possibilities of a coherent description of the themes that have developed independently, and to compare and extend the theoretical and computational techniques put forward in the different areas.

Magneto-Optical Imaging has developed rapidly over the last decade to emerge as a leading technique to directly visualise the static and dynamic magnetic behaviour of materials, capable of following magnetic processes on the scale of centimeters to sub-microns and at timescales from hours to nanoseconds. The images are direct, real-time, and give space-resolved information, such as ultrafast magnetic processes and revealing the motion of individual vortices in superconductors. The book is a fully up-to-date report of the present status of the technique.

The last few years have seen the emergence of a variety of new quantum phenomena specifically related to electronic or optical confinement at a sub-wavelength scale. Rapid developments occurred simultaneously in atomic physics (especially in cavity quantum electrodynamics) and in solid state physics (advances in quantum well technology and nano-optoelectronics). Breakthroughs in near-field optics provided new tools that could be applied to these domains. But the key concepts used to describe these effects are often very different, being specific to the community involved in a particular development. Readers of "Quantum Optics of Confined Systems" are given the opportunity to deepen their understanding of advances related more or less to their own field, while the basic concepts of the different fields are presented by means of tutorial introductions. Exciting new results are presented in a language accessible to all: advanced students, post-Ph.D. researchers, and senior scientists.

Devoted to the specific topic of friction, this book provides details of scientific and engineering perspectives, and background within the areas of contact mechanics, surfaces and adhesion. Topics also covered include fracture, deformation and interface shear, from the macroscopic behaviour of materials in frictional contact to microscopic models of uniform and granular interfaces; lubrication by solids, liquids and gases, from classical flow properties to the reorganization of monolayers of molecules under normal and shear stresses; new approaches at the nano- and atomic scales, covering the physics and chemistry of interfaces, an array of visually exciting simulations, using molecular dynamics, of solids and liquids in sliding contact, and related AFM/STM studies; and future issues in friction.
