Properties of Molecular Fluids: A Generalized van der Waals Analysis makes widely available a body of successful research on the development of a new density functional theory of fluids which makes it possible to understand and predict a wide range of properties and phenomena of molecular fluids by simple semi analytical theory. The book brings together all the recent advances made in the Geralized van der Waals theory in a clear and coherent presentation. The book is useful to a wide audience, including experimentalists, theoreticians, and engineers which use the theory for fluid property calculations. The level of the presentation in terms of mathematics appeals to an audience of variable background. The book contains exercises and may be used as a textbook for a course at the upper undergraduate or graduate level in physics or chemistry. It can also be used by scientists from other areas such as geophysics, oceanography, and molecular biology who would like to understand molecular fluids. Presents an approximate but fully derived and physically explained theory of molecular fluids which facilitates broad applications Derives a density functional theory of classical fluids and applies it to obtain equations of state as well as non-uniform fluid properties e.g. surface tension and adsorption Demonstrates how the theory can be applied to complex multi-center molecules forming a polymer fluid A home page for the book will provide user friendly programs to redraw figures in the book for variable parameters and perform calculations in particular applications A set of exercises is included to support use of the book in a course

Dr. Sture Nordholm did his research training in statistical mechanics with Robert Zwanzig and continued with postdoctoral research at The University of Chicago with Stuart Rice. His doctoral thesis was on nonequilibrium transport theory and he continued in Chicago working on both fundamental problems in molecular dynamics and theory of...
