Description

Starting out from the fundamentals, this book covers the chemistry and physics of ceramic materials, as well as their behavior and resulting properties, including bio-inspired approaches and microstructural aspects.
As such, it presents production methods as well as the scientific background, teaching all important mathematical methods: classical, quantum-mechanical, phenomenological, and model-based approaches.
Further emphasis is laid upon the current state of the art and possible developments and challenges within the near future.
