With important applications for ceramic sciences and solid earth geophysics, this book will be welcomed by all those in these fields. It describes in detail equations of state, which are fundamental in studying the physics and chemistry of the Earth. These represent the functional relationship between thermodynamic variables (pressure, volume, temperature) for solids. Oxides and silicates, especially those with high density, are examined.
A major addition to the literature on Solid Earth Geophysics ... strongly recommended ... to anyone interested in the very important field of the equations state of solids, especially as it relates to geophysical problems. -- Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta
"This book fills a niche that has been unoccupied for 50 years. There is no other. Thank you, Orson."--American Scientist
"The book. . .joins together the features of an advanced textbook and a very good comprehensive monograph."--J. Leliwa-Kopystynski, University of Warsaw
