The chemistry basics and physics basics paired with engineering "black box" concepts are presented in the book in hand.
Moreover, unorthodox ideas for future materials are the humus of the book in hand. On the one hand it is can be used as a gideline for students, scientist, and engineers interested in conventional and advanced ceramics, and on the other hand, it presents ideas for visionaries.
It is the alliance of a view into past, the present, an the future.
