This self-contained textbook aims to introduce the physics of structurally disordered condensed systems at the level of advanced undergraduate and graduate students. The topics discussed include the geometry and symmetries of the building blocks commonly used to obtain atomic structures, the various kinds of disorder, the phenomenology and the main theories of the glass transition, investigation of the structure of amorphous systems, the dependence of system structure on its dimensions (clusters), and the case of positional order in the absence of translational order (quasicrystals).

About the author (2003)

Paolo M. OSSI (born in Milan, 1953) PhD in Solid State Physics, is Associate Professor of Physics of Matter at the Dipartimento di Ingegneria Nucleare, Politecnico di Milano. His current research interests include the structure of metastable condensed systems, the interaction between energetic photon and particle beams and solids, the properties (in particular structural and mechanical) of thin films, both metallic and ceramic, deposited in the presence of energetic beams. Paolo M. Ossi is author, or co-author of more than 100 scientific papers, besides many contributions to international Conferences, Workshops and Symposia.
