The study of spin glasses is a fascinating new topic in condensed matter physics that has attracted considerable attention over recent years. This book gives a comprehensive account of the subject, and will provide a valuable overview and reference to both newcomers and experts in the field. The authors discuss the most important developments in the theory, experimental work and computer modelling of spin glasses. The first chapters give a general introduction to the basic concepts, followed by a discussion of mean field theory, the only well-established spin glass theory so far. This book will be of interest primarily to condensed matter physicists, but because of the potentially wide applications of the theory involved, the book should also appeal to researchers in other disciplines, including theoretical physics, metallurgy and computational neuroscience.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... [an] excellent and timely book ... a superb introduction to this fascinating field.' Physics Today
'... an excellent introduction to the subject ... by two of the physicists who have played a major role in its development ... a very complete introduction which will surely become an essential text for anyone wishing to enter the subject ...' Physics World
'Any major research library in the physical sciences or the science of complexity should have [this book] ... also recommended to specialists in any of the relevant fields.' Philip W. Anderson, American Journal of Physics
"In their excellent and timely book Konrad Fischer and John Hertz, both of whom have played major roles in the development of the theory, have done a considerable service to the condensed-matter community by giving us a very readable and comprehensive account of the key theoretical concepts and an informed discussion of some important experimental results." Physics Today
"Any major research library in the physical sciences or the science of complexity should have both books, which are also recommended to specialists in any of the relevant fields." Philip W. Anderson, American Journal of Physics
"...it presents a fairly full and clear picture of the physics of spin glasses in an intelligible way. It is worth keeping this book in all university libraries." V.B. Cherepanov, Physics in Canada
"...the first to offer a comprehensive account of the subject." Materials Characterization
