Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521651514, Hardcover)Blending rigorous presentation with ease of reading, this self-contained textbook covers the fundamentals of crystallography, symmetry and diffraction to several classes of materials. The first half of the book is a systematic treatment of the basics of crystallography, discussing bonding, crystal systems, symmetry, point groups and concepts of diffraction. The latter half is more advanced in scope, applying structural determination methods to the study of a broad range of materials, including metallic, ceramic, covalent, amorphous, molecular solids and nanomaterials. Throughout the text, mathematical theory and abstraction is complemented by a highly visual approach, allowing the reader to fully comprehend crystal structure. With over 430 illustrations, 400 homework problems and crystal structure files, this is suitable for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses on crystallography within materials science and engineering. Additional resources for this title including solutions for instructors, data files for crystal structures, and appendices, are available at www.cambridge.org/9780521651516.

"Blending rigorous presentation with ease of reading, this is a self-contained textbook on the fundamentals of crystallography, symmetry, and diffraction. Emphasis is placed on combining visual illustrations of crystal structures with the mathematical theory of crystallography to understand the complexity of a broad range of materials. The first half of the book describes the basics of crystallography, discussing bonding, crystal systems, symmetry, and concepts of diffraction. The second half is more advanced, focusing on different classes of materials, and building on an understanding of the simpler to more complex atomic structures."--BOOK JACKET.
