Knowledge of complex physical and engineering properties ofmaterials has become crucial as more advanced applications anddevelopments in science and industry rely on theseproperties.
The use of powerful tensor formalism to investigate, predict andcalculate the properties of materials is well understood, but ithas been undermined by the sheer weight of computation involved andby lack of information on the symmetry of tensors.
This situation is resolved with the publication of The Encyclopediaof Material Tensors on CD, the most comprehensive database on thesymmetry properties of material tensors available today.
The Encyclopedia of Material Tensors on CD:
* information which supersedes all conventional printed sources andsoftware programs on material tensor properties
* allows access to information on symmetry properties of over130,000 material tensors, for tensors of ranks from two toseven
* covers a virtually unlimited choice of physical effects andengineering problems
The Encyclopedia of Material Tensors on CD crates exciting newopportunities for research in material science, crystallography, optics, nonlinear optics, the study of elasticity, electric andmagnetic phenomena, mining, civil engineering and many otherfields.
