The Dislocation-Particle Analogy  and Plasma-Crystal Models
Editors:
Prof. David J. Fisher
Coming in:
August 2018
Periodical and volume:
Foundations of Materials Science and Engineering Vol. 96
Description:

The present monograph focuses on the very fruitful method of equating particle-physics phenomena - where the speed of light is a key factor – to dislocation-motion in solids – where the speed of sound plays an analogous role. The so-called ‘dusty plasma’ has proved to be a very useful substitute and its use confirms that the particle/dislocation analogy is well-founded.
