BooknewsThe 31 papers include explications of the fundamental physics of ferroelectrics and techniques for computations of ferroelectric properties from first-principles, and experimental contributions that demonstrate to theorists the complexity of real materials. Among the topics are local structure and polarization in lead containing ferroelectric oxides, temperature-dependent dielectric and piezoelectric response, the configuration dependence of physical properties of ferroelectric solid solution, Hartree-Fock studies of the ferroelectric perovskites, quantum effects, proton tunneling and nonlinear polarizability effects in hydrogen-bonded ferroelectrics, weighted density functionals for ferroelectric materials, and prospects for using gigabit ferroelectric nonvolatile memories using strontium bismuth tantalate thin films.
