Advances in Chemical Physics is the only series of volumes available that explores the cutting edge of research in chemical physics. This new guest-edited volume focuses on liquid polymorphism, containing a representative cross-section of research that questions established thinking by scrutinizing the evidence for and against, and inquiring into the possibility and consequences of the existence of more than one liquid phase in a pure substance. Highlighting the quest to understand liquid and vitreous polymorphism, the book features chapters on experiments, theory, and computation. All figures, displayed in color, are located at

About Author

H. EUGENE STANLEY is the Professor of Physics, Chemistry, Biomedical Engineering, and Physiology (School of Medicine) at Boston University. His current research focuses on understanding the anomalous behavior of liquid water, and he has made contributions to understanding complex systems, such as quantifying correlations among the constituents of the Alzheimer brain. He is one of the founding fathers of econophysics and has won the prestigious Boltzmann Award and Julius Edgar Lilienfeld Prize, among other notable achievements. STUART A. RICE received his master's and doctorate from Harvard University and was a junior fellow at Harvard for two years before joining the faculty of The University of Chicago in 1957, where he is currently the Frank P. Hixon Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus. AARON R. DINNER received his bachelor's degree from Harvard University, after which he conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Oxford and the University of California, Berkeley. He joined the faculty at The University of Chicago in 2003.
