    The aim of this new edition is identical to that of the first edition, that is, to provide an introduction to the chemistry and physics of solids that will act as a foundation to courses in chemistry, engineering, materials and physics, with a bias towards the materials spectrum. This textbook takes a unique integrated approach designed to appeal to both science and engineering students. This edition contains new sections on the use of computing methods to solve materials problems and has been thoroughly updated to include the many developments and advances made in the past 10 years, e.g. batteries, solar cells, lighting technology, lasers, graphene and graphene electronics, carbon nanotubes, and the Fukashima nuclear disaster. The book is carefully structured into self-contained bite-sized chapters to enhance student understanding and questions have been designed to reinforce the concepts presented. -- Provided by publisher.
