I'm doing a project on bubbles, and I'm trying to find resources on bubble physics.
My professor said that there is a classic on by clive, but couldn't remember the details, and I can't find it anywhere. Could anybody help?

Recommendations for any other good textbooks on basic bubble physics would be appreciated

what i've figured out is this: its hard getting book recommendations for subjects like this. i myself have trouble finding books on mass transfer for scientists.

if you're interested in surfactant chemistry, thermodynamics and bubble formation, you should look at books in Soft Condensed Matter Science such as this:

If you want to learn about sonoluminescence you can directly search for that.

If you want to learn about bubbles and foams applied to environmental or astrophysics, then I'm afraid I can't help you.

There is this work by Brennen on Cavitation and Bubble Dynamics:

Also available in expensive form from Amazon:

What is the field of interest ?

I second pixelchip's recommendation. Also, Brennen has the following book available for free:

Used it extensively when I was doing research in cavitation flow.

Nice one, looks like another great reference book - I didn't know that one was available, thanks meanrev!

Another one I forgot is: The Acoustic Bubble by Leighton
