This book offers a strong introduction to fundamental concepts
on the basis of materials science. It conveys the central issue of
materials science, distinguishing it from merely solid state
physics and solid state chemistry, namely to develop models that
provide the relation between the microstructure and the
The book is meant to be used in the beginning of a materials
science and engineering study as well as throughout an entire
undergraduate and even graduate study as a solid background against
which specialized texts can be studied. Topics dealt with are
"crystallography," "lattice defects," "microstructural analysis,"
"phase equilibria and transformations" and "mechanical strength."
After the basic chapters the coverage of topics occurs to an extent
surpassing what can be offered in a freshman's course.
