BooknewsContains 46 selected papers presented at a workshop held in March 1996. The papers discuss mass and charge phenomena, such as grain growth, grain-boundary movement, segregation, phase transition, liquid-phase formation, and high-temperature corrosion. These phenomena must be understood in order to manufacture reliable ceramics since transport phenomena in solids is always associated with the existence or formation of defects, and defect-derived conduction determines the electrical, magnetic, mechanical, and thermal properties of the final products.
