Written by renowned researchers in this field, this up–to date advanced treatise fills a gap in the literature on glasses. It gives an overview of basic experimental data, of its collection, prediction and theoretical interpretation, thereby paving the way to a deeper understanding of these topics. The present monograph covers the whole spectrum of problems involved in the interpretation of glasses and their properties like e.g. glass transition, relaxation, viscosity, existing and possible unexpected future applications of glasses. The book is recommended to students, to both young and experienced researchers interested in materials science, in particular in glasses and glass–ceramics, classical and non–equilibrium thermodynamics. It will become a source of new ideas and inspiration for a wide circle of readers working in other areas of science.

From the contents:

  •   Basic Properties and the Nature of Glasses: An Overview
  • Generic Theory of Vitrification of GlassForming Melts
