It was during this time that Thompson's followers developed the bases that were later taken up by developmental biology (also discussed further below). The Forms of Tissues, or Cell-aggregates’: D'Arcy Thompson's influence and its limits. In two chapters of his book On Growth and Form, D'Arcy Thompson used numerous biological and physical observations to show how principles from mathematics and physics - such as pressure differences, surface tension and viscosity - could explain cell shapes and packing within tissues.

The Physics of Foams by Denis Weaire and Stefan Hutzler is a lucid, terse and coherent introduction to the realm of foams. Weaire, who is co-author of another delightful text "The Pursuit of Perfect Packing", presents ideas about minimum surfaces, packing problems, and associated structural question with simple and elegant examples.

Ordinary foams such as the head of a glass of beer and more exotic ones such as solid metallic foams raise many questions for the physicist and have . Denis Weaire is in the Physics Department, Trinity College, Dublin. Stefan Hutzler is in the Physics Department, Trinity College, Dublin.

The present book describes the results of extensive experiments, computer simulations, and theories in an authoritative yet informal style, making ample use of illustrations and photographs. As an introduction to the whole field of the physics of foams it puts a strong emphasis on liquids while also including solid foams.

Foams, whether on a glass of beer or formed from solid metal, raise challenging questions for the physicist and have been the subject of substantial research in recent years. This introduction to the physics of foams describes a number of experiments, computer simulations, and theories. It adopts an authoritative yet informal style, making ample use of illustrations and photographs and emphasizes liquids while describing some recent work on solid foams. It uses simple, idealized models to discuss a range of topics, including structure, drainage, rheology, conductivity and coarsening. It requires a minimum of mathematics and is careful to present the theory and experiment together at every stage.

The Physics of Foams by Denis Weaire and Stefan Hutzler is a lucid, terse and coherent introduction to the realm of foams. Weaire, who is co-author of another delightful text "The Pursuit of Perfect Packing", presents ideas about minimum surfaces, packing problems, and associated structural question with simple and elegant examples.

The authors use minimum of mathematics to emphasize the key ideas related to foam rheology, drainage, stability, structure, coarsening and conductivity. By drawing their examples from varied sources (bubble rafts, beer foam, metal foam, magnetic froth, soap suds), and citing relevant experimental and simulation results that explain the concepts, Weaire and Hutzler have created a text that will be handy to instructors everywhere. As a scientific treatise, it connects our understanding with ideas emanating from observing beer and soap bubbles, thinking about Kepler or Kelvin's hypothesis about packing, and basic understanding of properties of (complex) fluids. The text is entertaining, and is supplemented by innumerable illustrations to make it a worthwhile reading for anyone remotely interested in foam physics.

In context of the other review, I may add that the text comes with a list of useful articles and books that can be referred to by the serious researchers interested in deeper questions or details left out of the text. Brevity of presentation has its own merits, and learning and teaching through analogies and intuition is favored and practiced in this informal, but elegant text. Recommended reading!

Complete but not intuitive. Don't have alternative recommendation if you want to learn about foams.
