Reviews

@qu:... Many of the topics covered here, such as the role of surface tension, the physical basis of the interactions between surfaces and the electrostatic properties of membranes, have not been extensively reviewed elsewhere. ... For those with a more general interest in the properties of membranes, the volume will provide excellent coverage of a less familiar literature. @source:SGM Quarterly
