Item description for Glassy Materials and Disordered Solids: An Introduction to Their Statistical Mechanics by Kurt Binder & Walter Kob...

The physics of glassy materials and disordered solids presents students with an area of study much more challenging than the physics of crystalline solids. Written by two recognized experts in the field, this highly readable book tackles the subject with the student firmly in mind, beginning with a pedagogical introduction to important concepts such as percolation, fractals, spin glasses, and glasses. Making use of these concepts, the authors show that such systems share many common aspects that can be described within the framework of statistical mechanics. The book is also an essential standard text for researchers on amorphous materials, equally accessible for theorists and experimentalists.

More About Kurt Binder & Walter Kob

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Kurt Binder received his Ph.D. in 1969 at the Technical University of Vienna. His thesis dealt with Monte Carlo simulations of Ising and Heisenberg magnets, and since then he has pioneered the development of Monte Carlo simulation methods in statistical physics. From 1969 until 1974 Kurt Binder worked at the Technical University in Munich, interrupted by a stay as IBM postdoctoral fellow in Zurich in 1972 73. After a year at Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ (1974) and a first appointment as Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Saarbrucken back in Germany (1974 1977), he was awarded a joint appointment as Full Professor at the University of Cologne and as one of the Directors of the Institute of Solid State Research at Julich (1977 1983). He has held his present position as Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Mainz, Germany, since 1983, and since 1989 he has also been an external member of the Max-Planck-Institut for Polymer Research at Mainz. Kurt Binder has authored/co-authored more than 900 research publications and edited 5 books dealing with computer simulations. Kurt Binder received the Max Planck Medal of the German Physical Society in 1993. He also acts as Editorial Board member of several journals and has served as Chairman of the IUPAP Commission on Statistical Physics. In 2001 he was awarded the Berni Alder CECAM prize from the European Physical Society. In 2007 he received the Boltzmann Medal from the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, and was named one of the first Gutenberg Fellows at the University of Mainz.

Kurt Binder has an academic affiliation as follows - Johannes Gutenberg Universit??t Mainz, Germany Johannes Gutenberg Univ.
