ADSORPTION - general reading
Some of those books seem to be a bit old, however are often a much better reading for a newcomer to adsorption, than newer but very specialized ones.

Some books/sources suggested by readers with their comments:
- J. Israelachwili, "Intermolecular and Surface Forces ...", Academic Press, 1985 (1st edition) (later editions are strongly extended)
A must-read book!
From Marcel Neitsch (Germany):
- D.D. Do: "Adsorption Analysis: Equilibria and Kinetics"
(M.N.: The first part is about isotherm modeling and there are over 50 equations compiled and discussed)
- J.W. Patrick (edt.): "Porosity in Carbons"
(M.N.: May be only the first article (by Byrne and Marsh) is interesting for anyone who works on adsorption, but I think this is one of the best articles for one who starts with adsorption)
Other useful books and sources:

[ You may find Fortran 77 and Fortran 90 NumRec books at Cornell Library On-Line ]
("Numerical Recipes in Fortran", "... in Pascal" and "... in C" with accompanying code - all are great programming cook-books and and give good theoretical background for a variety of numerical problems - though code rarely is very efficient, it is always a good starting point for research on a numerical problem)
