Publisher Synopsis

'This is a very nice, self-contained and inclusive book. It should provide a foundation for the anisotropic elastic theory of defects and their interactions for years to come.' John Hirth, Ohio State University 'This is a wonderful book on the elastic foundations of point, line and surface defects in crystals. It is well written by a master experimental and theoretical craftsman who has spent a long professional life in this field. The mathematical coverage of crystal defects and their interactions unfolds in classic style.' Johannes Weertman, Northwestern University '... provides a detailed and comprehensive presentation of the elasticity theory of crystal defects in full anisotropic form ... a full understanding of the ranges of applicability of mechanisms often necessitates the use of anisotropic elasticity employing advanced mathematical methodology. Such methodology is presently available only in scattered journal publications going back many years or in special treatises using advanced mathematical language of a large variety of forms and often involve[s] frustrating statements of 'it can be shown that'. In his book Balluffi provides detailed and compassionate developments, that skip little detail, permitting the reader to obtain a rare and penetrating view into complex methodology with a uniform mathematical language that is familiar to most advanced students and professionals ... a standard reference for years to come [for] physicists, materials scientists and practitioners in applied mechanics.'
