The Liquid and Supercritical Fluid States of Matter (Paperback)
This book addresses graduate students and researchers wishing to better understand the liquid and supercritical fluid states of matter, presenting a single cohesive treatment of the liquid and supercritical fluid states using the gas-like and solid-like approaches. Bringing this information together into one comprehensive text, this book outlines how our understanding of the liquid and supercritical fluid states is applied and explores the use of supercritical fluids in daily life and in research, for example in power generation, and their existence in planetary interiors.
Presents a single coherent treatment of the key knowledge about the liquid and supercritical fluid states
Provides comprehensive survey of key fluid properties from the latest experiments and applies our theoretical knowledge to understand the behaviour of these real fluids
Explores the consequences of recent advances in the field on our understanding in industry, nature, and in interdisciplinary research, including planetary science
About the Author
John E. Proctor is a senior lecturer in physics at the University of Salford and is head of the Materials and Physics Research Group. He specialises in condensed matter physics, particularly the study of fluids and solids under extreme pressure and temperature, principally through X-ray and neutron diffraction along with optical spectroscopy. His research is regularly published in leading international peer-reviewed journals. He completed his Ph.D. (2007) from the University of Manchester and his M.Phys. (2004) from the University of Oxford. He is one of the authors of An Introduction to Graphene and Carbon Nanotubes (CRC Press, 2017).
