Item description for Disordered Materials by Paolo M. Ossi...
This self-contained textbook aims to introduce the physics of structurally disordered condensed systems at the level of advanced undergraduate and graduate students. Topics discussed include the geometry and symmetries of the most commonly used building blocks to obtain atomic structures, the various kinds of disorder, the phenomenology and the main theories of the glass transition, the investigation on the structure of amorphous systems, the dependence of system structure on its dimensions (clusters), and the case of positional order in the absence of translational order (quasicrystals).

Reviews - What do customers think about Disordered Materials?
Rigorous but not complete Aug 21, 2003
I am a materials science engineer and read this book to learn about diamond-like carbon, which is a disordered material. This book covers a lot of topics, and ues a fair deal of equations and figures. It adequately covers most topics about disordered materials, though I could not find much information about diamond-like carbon. I would not recommend this book as an introductory text on the subject, but it is good for a reference. The text assumes the reader has fairly good knowledge of geometry, math, and solid state science, along with materials science. Much of the text could be rewritten to make it more readable, without reducing content.
