In "Nucleation in Condensed Matter", key theoretical models for nucleation are developed and experimental data are used to discuss their range of validity. A central aim of this book is to enable the reader, when faced with a phenomenon in which nucleation appears to play a role, to determine whether nucleation is indeed important and to develop a quantitative and predictive description of the nucleation behavior. The third section of the book examines nucleation processes in practical situations, ranging from solid state precipitation to nucleation in biological systems to nucleation in food and drink. "Nucleation in Condensed Matter" is a key reference for an advanced materials course in phase transformations. It is also an essential reference for researchers in the field. It features unified treatment of key theories, experimental evaluations and case studies; complete derivation of key models; detailed discussion of experimental measurements; and, examples of nucleation in diverse systems.
