By Klaus Hermann

A beneficial studying instrument in addition to a reference, this e-book presents scholars and researchers in floor technology and nanoscience with the theoretical crystallographic foundations, that are essential to comprehend neighborhood geometries and symmetries of bulk crystals, together with excellent unmarried crystal surfaces. the writer bargains with the topic at an introductory but mathematically sound point, supplying a variety of image examples to maintain the mathematics in context. The ebook brings jointly and logically connects many probably disparate structural concerns and notations used often by means of floor scientists and nanoscientists. a number of routines of various trouble, starting from easy inquiries to small learn initiatives, are incorporated to stimulate discussions concerning the varied subjects.

Oscillations and Waves: An Introduction

Bridging lower-division physics survey classes with upper-division physics classes, Oscillations and Waves: An creation develops a unified mathematical conception of oscillations and waves in actual structures. Emphasizing physics over arithmetic, the writer contains many examples from discrete mechanical, optical, and quantum mechanical platforms; non-stop gases, fluids, and elastic solids; digital circuits; and electromagnetic waves.

100 Years of Superconductivity

Even 100 years after its discovery, superconductivity maintains to deliver us new surprises, from superconducting magnets utilized in MRI to quantum detectors in electronics. a hundred Years of Superconductivity provides a complete number of issues on approximately all of the subdisciplines of superconductivity.

Research, Fabrication and Applications of Bi-2223 HTS Wires: 1 (World Scientific Series in Applications of Superconductivity and Related Phenomena)

The aim of this publication is to hide all facets of Bi-2223 superconducting wires from primary learn, fabrication method to functions. This booklet includes many chapters written by way of exclusive specialists within the world.

The Mathematical Theory of Symmetry in Solids: Representation Theory for Point Groups and Space Groups (Oxford Classic Texts in the Physical Sciences)

This booklet supplies the entire concept of the irreducible representations of the crystallographic element teams and area teams. this can be vital within the quantum-mechanical examine of a particle or quasi-particle in a molecule or crystalline good as the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of a method belong to the irreducible representations of the crowd of symmetry operations of that procedure.
