Kort om boken
This review volume provides the most up-to-date and authoritative description of research on icosahedral solids, which has advanced rapidly since the discovery of these unique materials in 1984. The present book, intended as a companion volume to the reprint volume on The Physics of Quasicrystals edited by P Steinhardt and S Ostlund, will be invaluable to graduate students and workers in the field as a comprehensive reference. Scientists in related fields can use it as a readable introduction to the important current problems in quasicrystals. The chapters have been written by many of the most prominent theorists and experimentalists on quasicrystals, both physicists and materials scientists, from around the world. Especially exciting are the details of the recent discovery of “perfect quasi-crystals”, new materials which promise to be an ideal form of quasiperiodic matter with little or no disorder. Other topics include: electron, X-ray and neutron quasi-crystallography, scanning tunneling microscopy studies, electronic transport experiments, quasicrystal faceting and statistical mechanics, growth rules and matching rules for quasicrystals, group theory and elasticity theory.Contents: Progress and Current Issues in Quasicrystals (D P DiVincenzo & P J Steinhardt)Order and Disorder in Icosahedral Alloys (P A Bancel); Neutron Scattering Approaches to Quasicrystals (Ch Janot & M de Boissieu)High-Resolution Electron Microscopy of Quasicrystals (K Hiraga)Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Studies of Quasicrystals (R S Becker & A R Kortan)(Quasi) Crystallography is Better in Fourier Space (N D Mermin)Matching Rules for Quasicrystalline Tilings (K Ingersent)Growth Rules for Quasicrystals (J E S Socolar)Continuous Atomic Surfaces (L S Levitov)Chiral Smectics as Quasicrystals (T C Lubensky et al.)Experimental Studies of Electronic Transport in Quasicrystals (K Kimura & S Takeuchi)Electronic Structure and Transport of Quasicrystals (T Fujiwara & H Tsunetsugu)Electronic-Structure and Total- Energy Calculation for Quasicrystals and Related Crystals (A E Carlsson & R Phillips)Faceting and Surface Roughening in Quasicrystals (T-L Ho)Random Tiling Models (C L Henley)Readership: Condensed matter physicists, crystallographers, materials scientists, metallurgists and mathematicians.Key Features:Analyzes the role of entrepreneurship in China's rapid economic growthInvestigates the existing economic dynamics and factors contributing to entrepreneurship in China from the perspective of the uniqueness of entrepreneurship in ChinaProvides a counterpoint to most existing literature, which tends to focus on the barriers to entrepreneurship in China (e.g. its immature markets and institutions) based on Western standards of entrepreneurshipIncludes contributions from prominent authors such as Zoltan Acs and Jian Gao
