Deals with various aspects of aperiodic crystal, quasicrystals, incommensurate crystals, composite crystals, modulated crystals and polytypes. The text is mainly oriented towards crystallographic investigations and to search for new theoretical and methodological methodsaiming to model this state of matter and to understand the links between the structure and the properties. Basically multidisciplinary, the text covers many fields of aperiodic crystals, from materials science to mathematics.
