This volume presents computer simulation methods and mathematical modelling of physical processes used in surface science research. It offers in-depth analysis of advanced theoretical approaches to behaviours of fluids in contact with porous, semiporous and nonporous solid surfaces. The book also explores interfacial systems for a wide variety of phenomena, including: absorption, flotation, osmosis, and colloidal stability.


"Prof. Borowko has compiled a volume focusing on computational methods applied to surface and colloid science….We have to praise her ability to put together such a large amount of high-quality articles, which begin with a discussion of the fundamentals ideas, followed by a digestible, though complete mathematical description of the models, and end with simple to more advanced applications. This book is a must for any practitioner in surface science….The way the articles are written allows the interested and casual reader to be immediately updated on cutting-edge research in the exciting field of surface and colloid science."

---Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2000
