#### Useful Quasicrystals

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 236.00The aim of this book is to acquaint the reader with what the author regards as the most basic characteristics of quasicrystals structure, formation and stability, properties in relationship with the applications of quasicrystalline materials. Quasicrystals are fascinating substances that form a family of specific structures with strange physical... more...

#### Quasicrystals

Elsevier Science 2007; US$ 225.00This book is aimed at researchers who are working in a field of quasicrystals to provide a reference to recent developments and ideas in the field and also at graduate students, who intend to study quasicrystals, to provide introduction of ideas. Topics in this book cover an entire field of quasicrystals, both experimental and theoretical, including... more...

#### Quasicrystals

Wiley 2006; US$ 232.00Quasicrystals form a new state of solid matter beside the crystalline and the amorphous. The positions of the atoms are ordered, but with noncrystallographic rotational symmetries and in a nonperiodic way. The new structure induces unusual physical properties, promising interesting applications. This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review... more...

#### Reconstructive Phase Transitions

World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 168.00This book deals with the phenomenological theory of first-order structural phase transitions, with a special emphasis on reconstructive transformations in which a group-subgroup relationship between the symmetries of the phases is absent. It starts with a unified presentation of the current approach to first-order phase transitions, using the more... more...

#### Quasicrystals

World Scientific Publishing Company 1999; US$ 256.00An introduction to quasicrystals for mathematicians, physicists, materials scientists and students. The original intent was for the book to be a progress report on developments in the field. However, the authors sought to adopt a broad, pedagogical approach focusing on points of lasting value. Many subtle and beautiful aspects of quasicrystals are... more...

#### Quasicrystals

Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 74.99In 1984 physicists discovered a monster in the world of crystallography, a structure that appeared to contain five-fold symmetry axes, which cannot exist in strictly periodic structures. Such quasi-periodic structures became known as quasicrystals. A previously formulated theory in terms of higher dimensional space groups was applied to them and new... more...
