Structure in Solids

  • George H. Duffey


TO AN OBSERVER, THE UNIVERSE APPEARS to be made up of objects and beings that act on each other. With an appropriate divider, each object may be broken down into smaller parts. When the object is homogeneous, each part is like any other part of the same size and shape.
