Description: Instabilities and patterning in driven materials are two related topics in materials science to which increasing attention has been paid in the past few years, leading to the emergence of a fastly expanding and pluridisciplinary domain. Theoretical approaches as well as simulations have yielded bases for modelling the kinetics and the dynamics of mutually interacting populations of objects, as well as various transitions towards organized configurations far from equilibrium.

Description: The fourth of the series International Symposium on Systems with Fast Ionic Transport was held in Warsaw, Poland. The Symposium devoted for presentation of the recent results and discussion of problems in the area of solid state ionics, among the scientists from East and from West was attended by 72 participants from 15 countries.

Description: This book covers the physics and technology of polycrystalline semiconductors by presenting the work of scientists who are concerned with a variety of polycrystalline materials in research, technology, and application, with a view to bridge the gap between fundamental and technological aspects of polycrystalline semiconductors.

Description: This publication bears witness of a renewal of the studies on dislocations. The texts of the lectures as well as those of the contributions illustrate, indeed, the wide spectrum of the present concerns. The openings towards physics, mechanics, even electrochemistry or geology, the new experimental approaches will certainly benefit to the investigation of new materials and complex situations.

Description: Catastrophe theory, which treats the singularities of smooth real-valued functions, refers to the unexpectedness of discontinous effects produced by continuos causes. Examples of this behaviour can be found throughout contemporary science. This theory can unify concepts and nomenclatures which have been in disarray for a long time because of their independent development in different scientific fields. Also, Catastrophe Theory emphazises metastable states, whereas "rigorous" statistical mechanics does not, and even denies their existence.

Description: The aim of this monograph is to introduce positron surface physics as a new tool for surface science. Since one of the dominant purposes of surface science is to observe the surface itself without distortion from its substrate, positron techniques will play a decisive role in future surface research.
