This book presents the reader with a fresh and unconventional approach to teaching crystallographic symmetry. Whereas traditional crystallography textbooks make a heavy use of algebra and rapidly become very technical, this book adopts in the first few chapters a 'pictorial' approach based on the symmetry diagrams of the International Tables for Crystallography. Readers are led step-by-step through simple 'frieze' and 'wallpaper' patterns, with many examples from the visual arts. At the end of chapter 3 they should be able to identify and analyse all these simple symmetries and apply to them the nomenclature and symbols of the International Tables. Mathematical formalism is introduced later on in the book, and by that time the reader will have gained a solid intuitive grasp of the subject matter. This book will provide graduate students, advanced undergraduate students and practitioners in physics, chemistry, earth sciences and structural biology with a solid foundation to master the International Tables of Crystallography, and to understand the relevant literature.

About the Author:


Paolo Radaelli, Department of Physics, Oxford University

Following a Laurea degree at the Universita degli Studia di Milano and a PhD at Illinois Institute of Technology, Professor Radaelli has held posts at the Argonne National Laboratory, CNRS Grenoble, the Institute Laue-Langevin and the ISIS Facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory. His main interest is the study of transition metal oxides displaying novel physical phenomena, such as high-temperature superconductivity, 'colossal' magneto-resistance or multiferroics behaviour, with the potential of device applications. He is now Dr Lee's Professor of Experimental Philosophy at the Clarendon Laboratory, Oxford University

Review:


"Written in a very stylish and accessible manner and supported with many useful black-and-white pictures and photographs in addition to important equations... Paolo Radaelli has succeeded in handling the subject of symmetry and its relevance to crystallography over just 144 pages which is in itself a great accomplishment. The book contains a great collection of monographs and textbooks lists and symmetry-related references in different topics of art, crystallography, mathematical and physical sciences that can be excellent supporting materials to the reader." -- Contemporary Physics
