This volume contains articles which address the modelling of such phenomena from a variety of viewpoints. These works serve to acquaint the reader with the range of macroscopic behaviour which can occur at liquid boundaries, to indicate various aproaches to relevant continuum descriptions and the difficulties of modelling non-equilibrium situations, to demonstrate applications of continuum models to the solution of practical problems, and to convey due appreciation of experimental aspects of the subject. The specific topics addressed are phenomenological approaches to fluid-flute interfaces and the physical interpretation of associated concepts and quantities, non-equilibrium thermodynamics and statistical physics of liquid-vapour interfaces, the physics of ice-water phase-change surfaces, and the prediction of static and dynamic contact angles, wetting and spreading.
