Problems In Crystal Physics With Solutions – Perelomova, Tagieva

Int this post, we will see the book Problems In Crystal Physics With Solutions by N. V. Perelomova and M. Tagieva.

About the book

This collection of problems in physical properties of crystals, first published in 1972, has survived a rigorous test of time and proved its merits for lecturers and students at the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys. The problems were compiled on the basis of university textbooks, special monographs, and journal articles. The book is intended for graduate and post-graduate students, as well as for engineers dealing with practical applications of crystals. It has been translated into German and French.

N. V. Perelomova, Cand.Sc. (Phys. and Math.), is a lecturer at the Chair of Crystallography of the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys. She is the author of the monograph “Acoustic Crystals” and of about 50 published works in crystal physics. M. M. Tagieva, Cand.Sc. (Phys. and Math.), is a senior instructor at the Chair of Crystallography of the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys, the author of 32 scientific papers.

The book was translated from Russian by and was published in .
