Properties of Materials: Anisotropy, Symmetry, Structure

Robert E. Newnham

Abstract

Crystals are sometimes called ‘Flowers of the Mineral Kingdom’. In addition to their great beauty, crystals and other textured materials are enormously useful in electronics, optics, acoustics and many other engineering applications. This richly illustrated text describes the underlying principles of crystal physics and chemistry, covering a wide range of topics and illustrating numerous applications in many fields of engineering using the most important materials today. Tensors, matrices, symmetry and structure-property relationships form the main subjects of the book. While tensors and matri ... More
