Crystallography Applied to Solid State Physics

Ajit Ram Verma (Author) Onkarnath Srivastava (Author)

A course on crystallography is a necessary beginning for all solid state physics courses, since the student must have a clear concept of the crystallographic methods and principles before proceeding to learn the physics of solids. The present authors have earlier written the book entitled 'Crystallography for the Solid State Physics'. The book proved very popular with the students and reviewers also highly commended the book, (e.g. one of the reviewers termed it as a treasure chest of knowledge in crystallography). However, it has been felt that solid state physics component in the earlier book was rather too little in content. The present book is an attempt to enlarge this content so as to provide solid state portion its due share. To accomplish this the already existing chapters on solid state have been enlarged and some new chapters have been added. The book is intended to serve as an introductory text for all graduate and undergraduate students whose eventual aim is to specialise in solid state physics.
