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.

Description: One of the main characteristics of materials science is that it deals with properties which often deviate from linear relationships when compared with such parameters as temperature, pressure, and concentration. The reasons for this behavior of materials are twofold: the speed of linear reaction can vary greatly, and abrupt changes may occur in the static or dynamic states of self-organisation.

Description: Transport processes in nonstoichiometric compounds are of considerable importance to engineering-related disciplines such as the high temperature corrosion of metals and sintering of ceramics. Therefore, there is a need of exchange of information between scientists involved in basic research on diffusion in solids and those involved in applied research on subjects such as high temperature oxidation of metals and alloys and corrosion inhibition.
