Intermetallics: Structures, Properties, and Statistics

Walter Steurer and Julia Dshemuchadse


The focus of this book is clearly on the statistics, topology, and geometry of crystal structures and crystal structure types. This allows one to uncover important structural relationships and to illustrate the relative simplicity of most of the general structural building principles. It also allows one to show that a large variety of actual structures can be related to a rather small number of aristotypes. It is important that this book is readable and beneficial in the one way or another for everyone interested in intermetallic phases, from graduate students to experts in solid-state chemist ... More

Keywords: intermetallic phases, intermetallics, data mining, crystal structures, crystal structure types, quasicrystals, high-entropy alloys, complex intermetallics
