  • Classical Theory of Crystal Dislocationsby Hiroyasu Saka

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2017; US$ 86.00 US$ 78.26

    The book consists of two parts: Part 1 is a standard text of dislocation theory. Mathematics is avoided as much as possible. Part 2 describes application of dislocation theory, which includes mechanical properties (including the inverse temperature dependence of strength) and dislocations in functional materials such as Si, GaN and SiC and dislocations... more...

  • Introduction to Liquid Crystalsby Peter J. Collings; Michael Hird

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 74.95

    This text relies on only introductory level physics and chemistry as the foundation for understanding liquid crystal science. Liquid crystals combine the material properties of solids with the flow properties of fluids. As such they have provided the foundation for a revolution in low- power, flat-panel display technology LCDs. In this book, the essential... more...

  • Wave Propagation and Diffractionby Igor T. Selezov; Yuriy G. Kryvonos; Ivan S. Gandzha

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 117.87

    This book presents two distinct aspects of wave dynamics – wave propagation and diffraction – with a focus on wave diffraction. The authors apply different mathematical methods to the solution of typical problems in the theory of wave propagation and diffraction and analyze the obtained results. The rigorous diffraction theory distinguishes three... more...

  • Electronic States in Crystals of Finite Sizeby Shang Yuan Ren

    Springer Singapore 2017; US$ 106.08

    This book presents an analytical theory of the electronic states in ideal low dimensional systems and finite crystals based on a differential equation theory approach. It provides precise and fundamental understandings on the electronic states in ideal low-dimensional systems and finite crystals, and offers new insights into some of the basic problems... more...

  • Photo Atlas of Mineral Pseudomorphismby J. Theo Kloprogge; Rob Lavinsky; Stretch Young

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 100.00

    Photo Atlas of Mineral Pseudomorphism provides a comprehensive overview on the topic of pseudomorphism—in which one mineral is replaced by another but still maintains its original crystal form—a phenomenon that is far more common than currently thought and is extremely important in understanding the geologic history of rocks. There are many examples... more...

  • Crystal Symmetriesby B. K. Vainshtein; I. Hargittai

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 72.95

    Crystal Symmetries is a timely account of the progress in the most diverse fields of crystallography. It presents a broad overview of the theory of symmetry and contains state of the art reports of its modern directions and applications to crystal physics and crystal properties. Geometry takes a special place in this treatise. Structural aspects... more...

  • Recrystallization and Related Annealing Phenomenaby Anthony Rollett; Gregory S. Rohrer; John Humphreys

    Elsevier Science 2017; US$ 225.00

    Recrystallization and Related Annealing Phenomena, Third Edition, fulfills the information needs of materials scientists in both industry and academia. The subjects treated in the book are all active research areas, forming a major part of at least four regular international conference series. This new third edition ensures the reader has access... more...

  • Handbookby Pierre Villars; Karin Cenzual; Roman Gladyshevskii

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 349.00

    The aim of this reference work is to provide the researcher with a comprehensive compilation of all up to now crystallographically identified inorganic substances in only one volume. All data have been processed and critically evaluated by the "Pauling File" editorial team using a unique software package. Each substance is represented... more...

  • Bent-Shaped Liquid Crystalsby Hideo Takezoe; Alexey Eremin

    CRC Press 2017; US$ 219.95

    Bent-Shaped Liquid Crystals: Structures and Physical Properties provides insight into the latest developments in the research on liquid crystals formed by bent-shaped mesogens. After a historical introduction, the expert authors discuss different kinds of mesophase structures formed by bent-shaped molecules. This book devotes the majority of its... more...

  • Cooperative Interactions in Lattices of Atomic Dipolesby Robert Bettles

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 102.55

    This thesis reports the remarkable discovery that, by arranging the dipoles in an ordered array with particular spacings, it is possible to greatly enhance the cross-section and achieve a strong light-matter coupling (>98% of the incident light). It also discusses the broad background to cooperative behaviour in atomic ensembles, and analyses in... more...
