Description: The molecular dynamics technique was developed in the 1960s as the outgrowth of attempts to model complicated systems by using either a) direct physical simulation or (following the great success of Monte Carlo methods) by b) using computer techniques. Computer simulation soon won out over clumsy physical simulation, and the ever-increasing speed and sophistication of computers has naturally made molecular dynamics simulation into a more and more successful technique. One of its most popular applications is the study of diffusion, and some experts now even claim that molecular dynamics simulation is, in the case of situations involving well-characterised elements and structures, more accurate than experimental measurement. The present double volume includes a compilation (over 600 items) of predicted solid-state diffusion data, for all of the major materials groups, dating back nearly four decades. The double volume also includes some original papers: “Determination of the Activation Energy for Formation and Migration of Thermal Vacancies in 401.0 Casting Aluminum Alloy” (N.A.Kamel et al.), “A Study of the Effect of Natural Aging on Some Plastically Deformed Aluminum Alloys using Two Different Techniques” (N.A.Kamel), “Estimation of Crystalline Size of Deformed 5251 Al Alloy using PALT and XRD Techniques” (M.A.Abdel-Rahman et al.), “Determination of the Activation Energy for Formation and Migration of Thermal Vacancies in 2024 Aircraft Material using Different Techniques and Methods” (N.A.Kamel), “Annealing Study of Al-Mg Wrought Alloys using Two Different Techniques and Estimation of the Activation Enthalpy of Migrating Defects” (G.Attallah et al.), “Studying the Formation of Fe2SiO4 and Pearlite Phases in Iron-Silica Sand Nanoparticle Composites” (T.Ahmad et al.), “Studies of Knight Shifts and Hyperfine Structure Constants of Tl2Ba2CuO6+y” (M.Q.Kuang et al.).

Heat transfer plays major role in many technical devises or in the formation of new materials. Heat transfer is based in three phenomena, namely conduction, convection and radiation. Understanding heat transfer at many levels, from atomic to macro, and its interaction with other physical phenomena has therefore long attracted the attention of many researchers in engineering and materials science and related disciplines. The present topical volume on "Heat Transfer Processes in Engineering Materials" captures a representative cross-section of some of the recent advances in the area of heat transfer. Reflecting the enormous breadth of the area, the range of topics covered is accordingly very large. Topics include the development and modification of the microstructure of materials. Technical applications such as casting problems, coal drying, air cooling systems and pyrolytic boilers. The prediction methods range from analytical to numerical methods such as the finite element method, the finite difference method and molecular dynamics simulation.

This work reflects the wide and fascinating range of fields to which positrons have made important contributions. This covers, in particular, the development of low-energy (eV-keV) beams of essentially mono-energetic positrons, in the late 1960s, which opened the door to an even wider range of fundamental and technological studies: from surface physics to polymer films. In her introduction Professor Ganguly offers some background knowledge on the extent to which positrons have influenced and contributed to work in numerous fields.
