The study of capillarity is in the midst of a veritable explosion.
Hence the temptation to write a new book, aiming at an audience of
students. What is offered here is not a comprehensive review of the
latest research but rather a compendium of principles.
How does one turn a hydrophilic surface into one that is hydrophobic,
and vice versa? We will describe a few solutions. Some rely on
chemical treatments, such as coating a surface with a molecular layer.
Others are based on physics, for instance by controlling the roughness
of a surface. We will also examine the dynamics of wetting. Drops that
spread spontaneously do so at a rate that slows down with time. They
can be tricked into covering large areas by spreading them suddenly.
We will describe a few of the many facets of their dynamical
Special additives are required for water to foam. Foams are desirable
in a shampoo but can be a nightmare in a dishwasher detergent.
Antifoam agents have been developed and are well known, but how do
they work? It is also possible to generate bubbles and foams without
special additives, for example in pure and viscous liquids such as
glycerin, molten glass, and polymers. As we will see, the laws of
draining and bursting then turn out to be quite different from the
conventional ones.
This book will enable the reader to understand in simple terms such
questions that affect every day life -- questions that also come up
during in industry. The aim is to view systems that often prove quite
complex in a way that isolates a particular physical phenomenon, often
avoiding descriptions requiring advanced numerical techniques will
oftentimes in favor of qualitative arguments. This strategy may at
times jeopardize scientific rigor, but it makes it possible to grasp
things efficiently and to invent novel situations.

'From the reviews:


Review by P. R. Douville, emeritus, Central Connecticut State University"You are an intelligent spider sitting on your web. Early morning light forms tiny rainbows as it passes through the beads of dew strung along the filaments composing your hard-earned handiwork. Why beads? What happened to the water in between each drop? To answer this question, our eight-legged intellectual must first gain an understanding of how liquids such as water actually wet surfaces and why such liquids fail to wet other surfaces. The problem encompasses such subjects as liquids rising up capillary tubes, paint spreading on solid surfaces or liquids spreading on other liquids, the fascinating subject of bubble formation and stability, and why water streams down some surfaces and forms droplets on other surfaces. De Gennes (Collà ge ((College) de France; Institute Curie), Brochard-Wyart (Institut Curie), and Quéré (Quere) (Collà ge ((College) de France) have written an excellent treatise on these phenomena that opens with a very poetic introduction relating esoteric concepts to everyday observations, and includes chapter references, historical sketches, and a very good discussion of each problem at chapter beginnings. For readers with backgrounds in mathematics, physics, and chemistry, although it is not beyond advanced undergraduates in the sciences and technological fields. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students.""This book is designed as an elementary introduction to the conceptual framework used in research on wetting/dewetting processes and related capillary phenomena. ... a simple and inspiring style of writing allows the authors to 'convey the sense of curiosity and joy' that unites researchers in this area ... . The range of topics covered and a host of physical ideas and principles the authors describe as guidelines in the field are likely to make this book interesting to a wide audience ... ." (Dr. Y. D. Shikhmurzaev, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 46 (1), 2005)"Capillarity refers to the study of surface phenomena involving at least one liquid phase. ... This book brings together (almost) everything which is known in a single volume. In view of the fact that the history of capillarity covers several centuries, this is a real 'tour de force'. ... It contains a wealth of practical information about a very large variety of surface phenomena. ... This book should be of interest to a large variety of scientists (not only physicists)." (Marc Baus, Physicalia, Vol. 57 (3), 2005)"Capillarity and Wetting Phenomena: Drops, Bubbles, Pearls, Waves is a translation of the earlier French Gouttes, Bulles, Perles et Ondes ... . It has been wonderfully translated by Axel Reisinger. The English is fully fluent and idiomatic ... . The book can be read with pleasure and profit by the uninitiated, but it is also a valuable - and even an indispensable reference work for the expert. ... contains a whole bookshelf of information - all of it useful and much of it fascinating." (Benjamin Widom, Physics Today, December, 2004)"De Gennes (Collège ((College) de France; Institute Curie), Brochard-Wyart (Institut Curie), and Quéré (Quere) (Collège (College) de France) have written an excellent treatise ... with a very poetic introduction relating esoteric concepts to everyday observations, and includes chapter references, historical sketches, and a very good discussion of each problem at chapter beginnings. ... Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals: two-year technical program students." (P. R. Douville, CHOICE, May, 2004)"The whole book is in the same spirit, which is very enjoyable ... . Thus it contains many illuminating examples and sketches ... . it will also act as a reference for those working in the fiel
