520    "Soft condensed matter physics relies on a fundamental 
       understanding at the interface between physics, chemistry,
       biology, and engineering for a host of materials and 
       circumstances that are related to, but outside, the 
       traditional definition of condensed matter physics. 
       Featuring contributions from leading researchers in the 
       field, this book uniquely discusses both the contemporary 
       experimental and computational manifestations of soft 
       condensed matter systems. From particle tracking and image
       analysis, novel materials and computational methods, to 
       confocal microscopy and bacterial assays, this book will 
       equip the reader for collaborative and interdisciplinary 
       research efforts relating to a range of modern problems in
       nonlinear and non-equilibrium systems. It will enable both
       graduate students and experienced researchers to 
       supplement a more traditional understanding of 
       thermodynamics and statistical systems with knowledge of 
       the techniques used in contemporary investigations"--
