This book contains lectures delivered at the 10th Physics Summer School on "Physics of Novel Materials" at Australian National University by internationally reputed scientists. It covers a wide variety of materials: semiconductors, superconductors, polymers, zeolites, clusters and nanostructures, and transport in novel materials. It is hard to find theoretical and experimental aspects of such diverse topics on novel materials in a single volume.
The electronic and structural properties of semiconductor clusters and nanostructures, J.R. Chelikowsky; classical and high temperature superconductivity, J.H. Miller and J.R. Claycomb; electrons solvated in zeolites, N.P. Blake and H. Metiu; spin glasses, D. Sherrington; the wonderful world of carbon, S. Prawer; semiconductor heterostructures, R.G. Elliman; ion implantation - a nonequilibrium process, J.S. Williams; transport in novel materials, A.B. Kaiser; coherent wave transport in low dimensional random media, N. Kumar.
