Physical Properties of Crystals: Their Representation by Tensors and Matrices (Oxford science publications)

Physical Properties of Crystals: Their Representation by Tensors and Matrices (Oxford science publications)

by J.F.Nye (Author)

Synopsis

First published in 1957, this classic study has been reissued in a paperback version that includes an additional chapter bringing the material up to date. The author formulates the physical properties of crystals systematically in tensor notation, presenting tensor properties in terms of their common mathematical basis and the thermodynamic relations between them. The mathematical groundwork is laid in a discussion of tensors of the first and second ranks. Tensors of higher ranks and matrix methods are then introduced as natural developments of the theory. A similar pattern is followed in discussing thermodynamic and optical aspects.
