This book describes how the arrangement of atoms in a solid and the way they move are related to the forces between atoms, and how they affect the behavior and properties of materials. The book is intended for final year undergraduate students and graduate students in physics and materials science.

`... excellent in many ways. It will be a useful book in the teaching of condensed matter physics, especially as it does achieve a substantial upgrading of the structural aspects of the subject, so long ignored by existing books. [...] I shall definitely be recommending it to my undergraduates
when it appears.
Prof. Mike Glazer, University of Oxford
`... fills a gap in the current literature in treating solids without any reference to the electrons. This leaves enough space for a competent coverage of topics which are often skimmed over in books which attempt to be more comprehensive, and also makes the structural aspects of
crystallography accessible to students with limited knowledge in physics.'
Dr Graeme Ackland, University of Edinburgh
`'Structure and Dynamics' is a superbly planned and written book, with carefully selected material and well-chosen examples. [...] Most of the material is given at a remarkable level of simplicity. It is characterised by deep insight, ease of style, and great pedagogical value. It can be
equally useful to students and teachers, and has every reason to become a classical book in its field.
Dr. Artem Oganov, University College London
