Review in Brief on Elasticity and Hydrodynamics of Solid Quasicrystals

Part of the Springer Series in Materials Science book series (SSMATERIALS, volume 260)


The elasticity and hydrodynamics of solid quasicrystals are two of basis of dynamics of soft-matter quasicrystals, a review in brief of the topics given in this chapter; it may be beneficial for understanding dynamics of soft-matter quasicrystals.
