Prof. A. Ciach - Proposed Ph.D. topics:
- Phase transitions and critical phenomena in systems containing charged colloids
- Statistical mechanics of aqueous solutions - hydrophobic and hydrophilic forces
- Lamellar phases near chemically and/or geometrically structured surfaces
- ``Living polymers'': structure and phase equilibria in ionic and/or dipolar fluids.
- Nucleation of lyotropic liquid crystals.
