Consists of invited lecture series and contributed research papers presented at the International Advanced School in Statistical Physics held at Punjab University, Chandiqarh, India under the Indo French Program of Cooperation in Science and Technology. Examines current studies of static and dynamical properties of liquids through time correlation function, computer simulation and neutron scattering experiments. Various Coulomb systems are introduced, with examples in one, two, and three dimensions provided. Small angle neutron scattering data from polydispersed random media are reviewed. Final sections discuss quantum theories of diffusion of localized and Bloch impurities in solids, chaos and turbulence, the spin glasses SK model and recent results on high temperature superconductors.
