Quasicrystals

Quasicrystals: The State of the Art has proven to be a useful introduction to quasicrystals for mathematicians, physicists, materials scientists, and students. The original intent was for the book to be a progress report on recent developments in the field. However, the authors took care to adopt a broad, pedagogical approach focusing on points of lasting value. Many subtle and beautiful aspects of quasicrystals are explained in this book (and nowhere else) in a way that is useful for both the expert and the student. In this second edition, some authors have appended short notes updating their essays. Two new chapters have been added. Chapter 16, by Goldman and Thiel, reviews the experimental progress since the first edition (1991) in making quasicrystals, determining their structure, and finding applications. In Chapter 17, Steinhardt discusses the quasi-unit cell picture, a promising, new approach for describing the structure and growth of quasicrystals in terms of a single, repeating, overlapping cluster of atoms.

The book provides an introduction to all aspects of the physics of quasicrystals. The chapters, each written by an expert in this field, cover quasiperiodic tilings and the modeling of the atomic structure of quasicrystals. The electronic density of states and the calculation of the electronic structure play a key role in this introduction, as does an extensive discussion of the atomic dynamics. The study of defects in quasicrystals by high resolution electron microscopy and the computer simulations of defects

Quasicrystals form a new state of solid matter beside the crystalline and the amorphous. The positions of the atoms are ordered, but with noncrystallographic rotational symmetries and in a nonperiodic way. The new structure induces unusual physical properties, promising interesting applications. This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review and presents most recent research results, achieved by a collaboration of physicists, chemists, material scientists and mathematicians within the Priority Programme "Quasicrystals: Structure and Physical Properties" of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG).

This book focuses on current topics in quasicrystal science and research. Various themes are addressed, such as atomic structure, growth of quasicrystals, statistical physics and thermodynamics, magnetism, phasons, propagation of waves, surfaces and technological potential of quasicrystals. Insight into basics in physics and chemistry is also given, with examples from metallurgy, the surface of alloys, plasticity, etc., in order to point out the possible genuine aspects of quasicrystals and allow a better comparison with conventional alloys.

The aim of this book is to acquaint the reader with what the author regards as the most basic characteristics of quasicrystals structure, formation and stability, properties in relationship with the applications of quasicrystalline materials. Quasicrystals are fascinating substances that form a family of specific structures with strange physical and mechanical properties as compared to those of metallic alloys. This, on the one hand, is stimulating intensive research to understand the most basic properties of quasicrystals in the frame of

It, therefore, explores the fundamental aspects of intermetallic, photonic, and phononic quasicrystals, as well as soft-matter quasicrystals, including their intrinsic physical and structural properties. In addition, it thoroughly discusses experimental data and related theoretical approaches to explain them, extending the standard treatment given in most current solid state physics literature. It also explores exciting applications in new technological devices of quasiperiodically ordered systems, including

Aperiodicity and Order, Volume 1: Introduction to Quasicrystals deals with various aperiodic types of order in quasicrystals as well as the basic physics of quasicrystalline order and materials. Questions about the nature of order and the order of nature are addressed. This volume is comprised of six chapters; the first of which introduces the reader to icosahedral coordination in metallic crystals, with emphasis on the structural principles of metallic materials that are crystalline and may be expected to carry over to

Reviews scatter widely as is expected for novel theories. The structural driving force is the icosahedral subcluster. Agglomerations 'rapidly solidify' into clusters and superclusters. The icosahedra share edges that outline 2D tiles. The tiles close the surface of a

The common topic of the eleven articles in this volume is ordered aperiodic systems realized either as point sets with the Delone property or as tilings of a Euclidean space. This emerging field of study is found at the crossroads of algebra, geometry, Fourier analysis, number theory, crystallography, and theoretical physics. The volume brings together contributions by leading specialists. Important advances in understanding the foundations of this new field are presented.
