Joel I. Gersten, Frederick W. Smith
The Physics and Chemistry of Materials
(Wiley-Interscience, 2001; 826 pp.)
This encyclopedic book provides the first unified and comprehensive treatment of the broad subject of materials. Appropriate for use in advanced materials courses, the book uses a fundamental approach to define the structure and properties of a wide range of solids, and includes sections on: the structure of materials, physical properties of materials and classes of materials. Another section covers surfaces, thin films, interfaces and multilayers, and the last deals with synthesis and processing. Joel I. Gersten and Frederick W. Smith are professors of physics at The City College and The Graduate Center.
