The Vitreous State: Thermodynamics, Structure, Rheology, and Crystallization, 2nd edition by Ivan S. Gutzow and Jürn W.P. Schmelzer
English | 2013 | ISBN-10: 3642346324 | 580 pages | PDF | 8,5 MB
This book summarizes the experimental evidence and modern classical and theoretical approaches in understanding the vitreous state, from structural problems, over equilibrium and non-equilibrium thermodynamics, to statistical physics. Glasses, and especially silicate glasses, are only the best known representatives of this particular physical state of matter.
