Multiscale Dissipative Mechanisms and Hierarchical Surfaces covers the rapidly developing topics of hierarchical surfaces, roughness-induced superhydrophobicity and biomimetic surfaces. The research in these topics has been progressing rapidly in the recent years due to the advances in the nanosciences and surfaces science and due to potential applications in nanotechnology. The first in its field, this monograph provides a comprehensive review of these subjects and presents the background introduction as well as recent and new results in the area.This nonlinearity results in some static frictional problems having no solution or a nonunique solution, e.g., the so-called PainlevAc  paradox. These paradoxes show that the rigid-body dynamics with contact and Coulombian friction isanbsp;...
