“A very basic, concise and descriptive introduction to crystallography. . . . The authors emphasize the spatial structure of the elements and their binary compounds. Consistent with the work’s stated purpose are drawings of structures that show atomic positions and symmetry properties. There are extensive tables of lattice constants. Readers will benefit from the solutions to all the exercises for each chapter.”

This book is intended to be a complete and clear introduction to the field of crystallography. It includes an extensive discussion on the 14 Bravais lattices and the reciprocal to them, basic concepts of point- and space-group symmetry, the crystal structure of elements and binary compounds, and much more.
The purpose of this textbook is to illustrate rather than describe “using many words” the structure of materials. Even readers who are completely not familiar with the topic, but still want to learn how the atoms are arranged in crystal structures, will find this book useful. Each chapter is accompanied by exercises designed in such a way to encourage students to explore the different crystal structures they are learning about. The solutions to exercises are provided at the end of the textbook.
Undergraduate and graduate students and lecturers in physics, chemistry, biology, electrical & electronic engineering, and materials science & engineering; researchers in physics, chemistry, and nanotechnology
