Review articles on surface energy

Due to interest in nanotechnologies, several researchers in the mechanics community have started focusing on surface energy effects. I found these two review articles (very long, >100 pages!) which provide decent tutorials and references on this subject suitable for training begining graduate students.

Elastic effects on surface physics, Surface Science Reports, Volume 54, Issues 5-8, August 2004, Pages 157-258Pierre Müller and Andrés Saúl

Surface thermodynamics revisited, Surface Science Reports, Volume 58, Issues 5-8, September 2005, Pages 111-239A.I. Rusanov

I used the first review before, but the second is new to me. Thank you Pradeep.

Incidentally, you made links to sites that were only accessible to people at the University of Houston. I edited your post, and changed the links to the sites of ScienceDirect, which is accessible to everyone. Unfortunately, on these sites only the abstracts are free. Shall we call them ScienceIndirect?
