This volume contains an updated glance at recent developments in statistical physics. Topics discussed include structural and transport properties of colloidal suspensions and polymeric systems, Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulations of fluids, topological aspects of wetting and other critical phenomena, reaction-diffusion equations, and the statistical mechanics of solids under stress.


Surfactant film curvature elasticity and wetting transitions in microemulsions, D. Langevin, et al; bending rigidity of the lipuid-vapor interface, V. Romero-Rochin, et al; inhomogeneous colloidal suspensions, P. Gonzalez-Mozuelos and M. Medina-Noyola; complex dynamics in reactive lattice-gas models, R. Kapral, et al; on the method of volume averaging - the one-equation model for two-phase systems with diffusions and reaction, J.A. Ochoa Tapia; tunnelling resistivity, scale invariance and the Petersburg paradox, P. Palffy-Muhoray; interdiffusion in polymer mixtures, G. Nagele, et al; temperature dependence of dielectric relaxation near the glass transition in linear polymers, J. Taguena-Martinex, et al; transition to periodic structures in block co-polymer melts - do the chains stretch or contract?, M. Olvera de la Cruz; umbrellas and ions, J.P. Valleau; computer simulations of confined fluids, J. Alejandre and G.A. Chapela; universality of wetting near critical points, J.O. Indekeu; statistical mechanics of line tension, C. Varea and A. Robledo; solids under stress - the statistical mechanics of failure, W.M. Gelbart, et al.
