About this book

Introduction

Crystallographers have to apply many mathematical methods in their daily work. "Mathematical Techniques in Crystallography and Materials Science" brings together common and less familiar mathematical procedures used in studies of the structures and physical properties of solids. This practical guide and reference serves as a unified source book for students and professionals, and it provides a solid basis for further studies in more specialized literature. Based Prince’s decades of practical experience, it can be recommended as an introduction for beginners in crystallography, as a refresher and handy guide for crystallographers working on specific problems, and as a reference for others seeking a dictionary of basic mathematical and crystallographic terms. The third edition further clarifies key points.

"This book presents a series of mathematical methods and procedures … . The material is well set out … . In a refreshing approach, the references are introduced with a historical flavour. ... This type of book would be particularly useful for students and professionals who are new to crystallography. It would also be a handy guide to materials scientists … . this book generally fulfils its aims as a practical guide and reference to students and professionals in the field of crystallography."
