Dynamical Theory of Crystal Lattices

Front Cover
Clarendon Press, 1954 - Science - 420 pages
At the time of its publication this classic text, co-written by the Nobel Laureate Max Born, represented the definitive account of the subject and in many ways it still does. The book begins with a general discussion of the statistical mechanics of ideal lattices, leading to the electricpolarizability and to the scattering of light. It then provides detailed discussions of long lattice waves, thermal properties, and optical properties.
