Colloidal interactions: From effective potentials to structure
C. N. Likos
This issue is an overview of some key theoretical tools employed for the investigations of the equilibrium structure and thermodynamics of complex fluids. Focus is placed on the most common systems of soft-matter science. The concept of the effective Hamiltonian is introduced and a precise mathematical definition is given. Its properties and key approximations in deriving effective potentials are discussed. The ways in which the effective interactions can be combined with tools from the theory of fluids and statistical mechanics are presented.General principles and extensive exposures are give, as well as applications to interfacial and wetting behaviours of complex mixtures.

Incontri di Fisica delle Alte Energie – IFAE 2013
Cagliari, 3-5 Aprile 2013
Edited by W. Bonivento, B. Saitta
The Cagliari meeting of Incontri di Fisica delle Alte Energie (IFAE) marks the 12th edition of this new series and follows thirteen editions dedicated to LEP. As expected, the new boson discovered at CERN in 2012 was the main star of the scientific programme of this edition of IFAE. However, considerable attention was given to neutrinos as well as to other crucial aspects of high-energy physics, as these proceedings clearly show.
EPL, formerly Europhysics Letters, was founded in 1986 by the European Physical Society (EPS), the Société Française de Physique (SFP), the Società Italiana di Fisica (SIF) and the Institute of Physics (IOP). The new journal incorporated Lettere al Nuovo Cimento and Journal de Physique Lettres, the two national "Letters journals" of SIF and SFP, respectively, and has been published by EPS, EDP Sciences (the subsidiary of SFP) and SIF until 2006. Relaunched in 2007 as EPL, it is now published under the scientific policy and control of the EPS by EDP Sciences, IOP Publishing and SIF for a partnership of 17 European physical societies (the EPL Association). EPL publishes original, high-quality Letters in all areas of physics, ranging from condensed matter topics and interdisciplinary research to astrophysics, geophysics, plasma and fusion sciences, including those with application potential. Articles, besides containing sufficient information to satisfy workers in the field, must also be of interest and relevance to wider sections of the physics community.
