9780198506782: Structure and Dynamics: An Atomic View of Materials (Oxford Master Series in Physics)

Structure and Dynamics covers the wide range of general principles that govern the behavior of atoms in solids and applies them to the full range of material types known to man. It focuses on the structure of materials at an atomic level and how the atoms vibrate inside solids, bringing these topics together to explore how the atomic principles determine the behavior and properties of materials. Topics discussed include the factors and reciprocal space, the types of atomic bonding, the formalism of atomic vibrations and the theories of phase transitions. The tools of diffraction and spectroscopy in both laboratory and large scale facilities are also covered.

Review:

`... 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

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book is concerned with a wide range of general principles that govern the behaviour of atoms in solids, and these principles are applied to the full range of types of materials known to man. The dual focus is on the structures of materials at an atomic level and on how the atoms vibrate inside solids. This dual focus comes together to explore how the atomic principles determine the behaviour and properties of materials. Attention is also given to experimental methods. The general principles include the factors that determine the packing of atoms to form the huge variety of structures, the formal description of real and reciprocal space, the types of atomic bonding, the formalism of atomic vibrations, and the theories of phase transitions. The tools covered include diffraction and spectroscopy, both laboratory and large-scale facilities. Bookseller Inventory # AOP9780198506782
