Using examples from engineering and other disciplines, Newnham (solid state science, Pennsylvania State U.) describes the physics and chemistry of crystals for science and engineering students at the undergraduate level. He focuses on tensors, matrices, symmetry and the relationships between structure and property, including transformation, thermodynamic relationships, pyroelectricity, stress and strain, elasticity, magnetic and nonlinear phenomena, ferrole crystals, electric resistance, acoustic waves, optics (including nonlinear optics), dispersion and absorption and chemical anisotropy.
