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. Inhalt Magnetic wetting transition.- Recent exact results on wetting.- Wetting of a disordered substrate.- An introduction to a mathematical description of the wetting phenomena in the ising model.- Wetting at nanoscopic scales: Some experiments.- Adsorption and theory of fluids.- Front propagation in one dimension.- An introduction to thermocapillary convection.- Antonov rule and multilayer wetting in q state models.- Random surfaces in statistical mechanics.- The influence of bulk disorder on wetting phenomena in two dimensional systems.
