The study of interfaces within and between materials is a central field which is relevant to almost all aspects of materials science. For example, interfaces play a role in many of the mechanical and electrical properties of materials, phase transformations, and microstructure of materials.This book is intended to serve as a graduate text consisting of four inter-related parts spanning the structure, thermodynamics, kinetics, and properties of interfaces in crystalline materials. Throughout the book emphasis is placed on the conceptual foundations of the subject through the exposition of simple models and descriptions of key experimental observations. In this way the reader is gradually taken to the forefront of the subject. The first four chapters deal with structural aspects of interfaces - interfacial geometry, dislocation models, interatomic forces, and atomic structure. There are three chapters dealing with thermodynamic aspects of interfaces; the thermodynamics of interfaces; interfacial phases and phase transitions, and segregation of solute atoms. The kinetics of interfaces are covered in three chapters concerned with diffusion, conservative motion, and non-conservative motion. Finally there are two chapters which cover the electrical and mechanical properties of interfaces. This book is a unique introduction to the field of interfaces in crystalline materials spanning the subject in a coherent and pedagogical style.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review from previous edition ... a wonderful addition to the literature of internal interfaces. The obviously great efforts of Sutton and Balluffi in preparing their book have enormously aided the materials community. * Physics Today *
Sutton and Balluffi have successfully created a scholarly, integrated and up-to-date text on the vast subject of interfaces in crystalline solids. * MRS Bulletin *
... invaluable for scientists and students working in the area of interface science. The authors have shown that it is still possible to write an excellent and detailed monograph on a specific subject. * Physics World *
The book is of superior quality and can be expected to become a classical reference source for many years to come. * J Solid State Electrochem. *
A mighty achievement. * John Spence, Arizona State University *
