Amorphous and nanocrystalline materials are a class of their own. Their properties are quite different to those of the corresponding crystalline materials. This book gives systematic insight into their physical properties, structure, behaviour, and design for special advanced applications.

From the reviews:
"The book consists of seven chapters covering a wide area of metastable amorphous and nanocrystalline materials. ... the book is a significant contribution to modern material science and may be interesting to scientists, students, and producers in the field of novel non-equilibrium materials." (M. Galova, Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry, Vol. 6 (4), 2002)
"The book presents a very good account of the state of the research activity in the areas of the 'new functionally important materials that demonstrate superior properties in a wide range of conditions'. In this respect, the editors have accomplished their supposed goal of showing the progress achieved in the areas of amorphous and nanostructured materials ... ." (Professor C. Suryanarayana, Materials World, Vol. 10 (1), 2002)
