Overview

Written by renowned researchers in this field, this up-to date advanced treatise fills a gap in the literature on glasses. It gives an overview of basic experimental data, of its collection, prediction and theoretical interpretation, thereby paving the way to a deeper understanding of these topics.

The present monograph covers the whole spectrum of problems involved in the interpretation of glasses and their properties such as glass transition, relaxation, viscosity, existing and possible unexpected future applications of glasses.

The book is recommended for students, to both new and experienced researchers in the field of materials science, in particular in glasses and glass-ceramics, classical and non-equilibrium thermodynamics. An excellent source of new ideas and inspiration for a wide circle of readers working in other areas of science.

With a preface by L. David Pye and a foreword by Edgar D. Zanotto

    Cringeworthy Textbook on Glass

    This book gives an overview of "old school" glass transition theory, state-of-the-art circa 1970s. The coverage of new glass transition physics is very poor. This book is definitely not worth the time or money.
