All living organisms consist of soft matter. For this reason alone, it is important to be able to understand and predict the structural and dynamical properties of soft materials such as polymers, surfactants, colloids, granular matter and liquids crystals. To achieve a better understanding of soft matter, three different approaches have to be integrated: experiment, theory and simulation. This book focuses on the third approach - but always in the context of the other two. Contents: Role of Modeling in Soft Matter Physics (D Frenkel); Applications of Density Functional Theory in Soft Condensed Matter (H Lwen); Polymer Phase Separation (M Mller); Self-Consistent Field Theory of Block Copolymers (F Qiu et al.); Dynamic Self-Consistent Field Theories for Polymer Blends and Block Copolymers (T Kawakatsu); Molecular Dynamics in Crystallization of Helical Polymers: Crystal Ordering and Chirality Selection (T Yamamoto); Interplay of Liquid-Liquid Demixing and Polymer Crystallization (W Hu); Elucidation of Single Molecular Observation of a Giant DNA (C-Y Shew & K Yoshikawa); Theoretical Modeling of Hydrogen Bonding in Macromolecular Solutions: The Combination of Quantum Mechanics and Molecular Mechanics (J Ma et al.) & Exotic Electrostatics: Unusual Features of Electrostatic Interactions between Macroions (A Naji et al.).
