Editorial Reviews

The serious enthusiast of the Casimir effect will rejoice at the publication of this book since it contains a wealth of material, some of which is not very widely known...The book has next to no overlap with books devoted to the Casimir effect in condensed matter physics, like Krech's book("The Casimir Effect in Critical Systems") or Langbein's book ("Van der Waals Attraction").
