Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521663792, Paperback)How can elements be combined to produce a solid with specified properties? This book acquaints readers with the established principles of crystallography and cohesive forces needed to address the fundamental relationship among composition, structure and bonding. Starting with an introduction to periodic trends, the book discusses crystal structures and the various primary and secondary bonding types, and finishes by describing a number of models for predicting phase stability and structure. Its large number of worked examples, exercises, and detailed descriptions of numerous crystal structures make this an outstanding advanced undergraduate or graduate-level textbook for students of materials science.

"One of the motivating questions in materials research today is: how can elements be combined to produce a solid with specified properties? One part of the answer to this question lies in the fundamental relationship between the composition, structure and bonding in crystalline materials. This book is intended to acquaint the reader with established principles of crystallography and bonding that are needed to understand this relationship." "This book is primarily intended as an advanced undergraduate or graduate level textbook for students of materials science who are preparing to conduct research. However, it will also be useful to scientists and engineers who work with solid materials."--BOOK JACKET.
