Physics of Functional Materialsby Hasse Fredriksson
Synopses & Reviews
The field of material science encompasses elements of metallurgy, chemistry, physics, engineering and nanoscience. One of the main aims of material science is to understand materials fundamentally so that new materials with tailored properties can be created. thus, education in material science needs to involve the field of traditional material physics.
This textbook provides an excellent introduction to the physics of functional materials with solved examples in the text and exercises for students at the end of each chapter as well as answers to all the exercises at the end of the book. Solutions to the exercises can also be downloaded from www.wile.com.
Topics covered are:
This book is suitable for students of various sciences at the upper undergraduate an postgraduate level. Examples of such sciences are materials science, chemistry, metallurgy and many other scientific and technical fields where a basic knowledge of the foundations of modern physics and/or properties of materials is necessary or desirable as a basis and a background for higher studies. it is also valuable supplementary reading for engineers who work with problems relating to the field of material science and engineers who work with computer analysis of problems in this field.
Written by academics with more than 30 years experience teaching physics and material science, this book will act as a one-stop reference on functional materials. Offering a complete coverage of functional materials, this unique book deals with all three states of the material, providing an insightful overview of this subject not before seen in other texts.
