Assuming an elementary knowledge of quantum and statistical physics, this book provides a comprehensive guide to principal physical properties of condensed matter, as well as the underlying theory necessary for a proper understanding of their origins. The subject matter covers the principal features of condensed matter physics, but with particular accent on the properties of metal alloys. Relevance to technical applications is recognized. Professor Myers provides both a comprehensive and concise introduction to the field, laying down the fundamental concepts required to understand the principles of solids and liquids. It is abundantly illustrated with figures, and exercises are provided for classroom more
