Theory of materials : from structures to properties

MSE-300

Lecturer(s) :

Stolichnov Igor

Language:

English

Summary

Macroscopic properties of solids are addressed using symmetry arguments, tensors, thermodynamics, and simple phenomenological models.

Content

1. The tools of phenomenological descriptions: symmetry, tensors, and thermodynamics
2. Description of static equilibrium properties:dielectric response,elasticity,piezoelectricity, pyroelectricity and thermal dilatation
3. Description of dynamic equilibrium properties and transport properties: dielectric relaxation, sound propagation, electrical conductivity, heart conductivity, and thermoelectric phenomena
4. Light propagation in anisotropic materials
5. Landau theory of structural phase transitions
