About these proceedings


This is a collection of reasonably self-contained review articles on various features of wetting phenomena from both experimental and theoretical points of view. The experimental papers are concerned with wetting at nanoscopic scales, magnetic wetting transitions, convection at interfaces, and adsorption on a surface. The theoretical part is constituted by recent exact results at d=3, some reviews on wetting and disorder, a mathematical description of wetting, front propagation, random surfaces, and wetting within Potts models. The book addresses researchers, engineers, and graduate students in chemistry, physics, and applied mathematics.
