Editorial Reviews

Reviews for original "Microflows and Nanoflows":"For those who want to compute flows at the micro scale, this monograph is a must. It describes the state of the art and helps by providing coefficients, such as [are] needed in situations of slip. Those who wonder what new fluid dynamics there is in the microworld are served by the overview of theory and treasures of numerical methods." â?" European Journal of Mechanics B/Fluids"It is a well-written book which should prove beneficial to the researchers in the field" Zentralblatt fur MathematikFrom the reviews:"Microflows and nanoflows will become an important reference for any researcher interested in the fundamental science and simulation techniques for flow in microchannels and nanopores. ... The new additions in the current book essentially render it the most fundamental book in the field of microfluidics and nanofluidics. . I strongly recommend this book as a fundamental reference for the multiscale simulation researchers and for the more fundamental reference theorists in the area of microfluidics and the new field of nanofluidics." (Hsueh-Chia Chang, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 c)"The monograph under review presents a systematical presentation of all questions connected with fundamentals and simulation of microflows and nanoflows. . The reviewed monograph is the first systematic fundamental presentation of the subject. It is suitable for graduate students and researches in fluid mechanics, physics and in electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering." (Peter A. Velmisov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1115 (17), 2007)
