About this book

Crystallography is an interdisciplinary science covering a wide area, from biology to earth sciences, mathematics and materials science. Its role is growing, owing to the contribution crystallography can offer to the understanding of such diverse fields as biological structures, high-temperature superconductors, mineral properties, and phase transitions.

Fundamentals of Crystallography describes both the theoretical bases and applications of different areas interacting with crystallography. As with the first and second editions, it is organized as a collection of chapters written by recognized specialists, with all contributions being harmonized into a unified whole. The main text is devoted to the presentation of basics whilst the appendices deal with specialist aspects.

In this third edition topics have been updated so as to document the present state of the art and emphasis is placed upon areas of current research.

New to this edition:
- Updated throughout to reflect the current state of the art, and for clearer pedagogy.
- 95 new figures introduced, to aid understanding.
- Reference lists updated to reflect recent advances in the field.
- Many sections completely rewritten, including those on powder crystallography, electron diffraction, phase determination procedures, using the dual space procedures, and H-bonding.
- New material introduced, including sections on charge-transfer or donor-acceptor interactions, electron density modification methods, and humidity control of macromolecular crystals.

Media reviews

"This book is comprehensive, modern, interdisciplinary and well designed for graduate students and researchers who are familiar with intermediate linear algebra, group theory and Fourier transforms. [...] The book elucidates the theoretical and mathematical aspects of crystallography and defines and compares the practical aspects of crystal preparation, X-ray sources and detectors, data acquisition and analysis. Its scope includes both X-ray and neutron crystallography, with detailed applications to inorganic and mineral crystals and protein crystallography. It includes excellent discussions of intermolecular forces, stereochemistry and the fundamentals of various types of chemical bonds. It is well illustrated; the references are up to date; and a useful index is provided."
– Barry R. Masters, Optics & Photonics News
