New models for dislocation structure and motion are presented for nanocrystals, nucleation at grain boundaries, shocked crystals, interphase interfaces, quasicrystals, complex structures with non-planar dislocation cores, and colloidal crystals. A review of experimentally established main features of the magnetoplastic effect with their physical interpretation explains many diverse results of this type. The model has many potential applications for forming processes influenced by magnetic fields. • Dislocation model for the magnetoplastic effect • New mechanism for dislocation nucleation and motion in nanocrystals • New models for the dislocation structure of interfaces between crystals with differing crystallographic structure • A unified view of dislocations in quasicrystals, with a new model for dislocation motion • A general model of dislocation behavior in crystals with non-planar dislocation cores • Dislocation properties at high velocities • Dislocations in colloidal crystals

This monograph provides a complete overview of the coincidence site lattice (CSL) model and its application to grain boundary engineering. Originally propounded several decades ago, the CSL model has become a cornerstone of boundary structure research, particularly in cubic materials. Dr Randle provides an introduction to grain boundary geometry for the non- - specialist reader (Chapter 2) before introducing work on bicrystals and polycrystals (Chapter 3). An overview and analysis of CSL data is given in Chapter 4. Extensions of the CSL analysis to include the grain boundary plane and grain junctions are considered in Chapter 5. The concluding chapter reviews in detail the application of the CSL model to orientation relationships during recrystallisation, anomalous grain growth in iron silicon alloys and twinning.

This volume contains the proceedings of the Colloquium "Analysis, Manifolds and Physics" organized in honour of Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat by her friends, collaborators and former students, on June 3, 4 and 5, 1992 in Paris. Its title accurately reflects the domains to which Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat has made essential contributions. Since the rise of General Relativity, the geometry of Manifolds has become a non-trivial part of space-time physics. At the same time, Functional Analysis has been of enormous importance in Quantum Mechanics, and Quantum Field Theory. Its role becomes decisive when one considers the global behaviour of solutions of differential systems on manifolds. In this sense, General Relativity is an exceptional theory in which the solutions of a highly non-linear system of partial differential equations define by themselves the very manifold on which they are supposed to exist. This is why a solution of Einstein's equations cannot be physically interpreted before its global behaviour is known, taking into account the entire hypothetical underlying manifold. In her youth, Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat contributed in a spectacular way to this domain stretching between physics and mathematics, when she gave the proof of the existence of solutions to Einstein's equations on differential manifolds of a quite general type. The methods she created have been worked out by the French school of mathematics, principally by Jean Leray. Her first proof of the local existence and uniqueness of solutions of Einstein's equations inspired Jean Leray's theory of general hyperbolic systems.

Sir Charles Frank is one of the foremost scientists of the last fifty years. He has made important advances in a large number of different fields in physics, notably the properties of dislocations in crystals. This book is a celebration of his work, with contributions from many of his former colleagues and students. The contributors are all eminent in their particular fields, and the great variety in their contributions demonstrates the vast impact Sir Charles has had on modern physics. The papers range over many of the fields in which Sir Charles has worked. These include crystal growth and crystal properties, liquid crystals, particle physics, metallurgy, polymer physics, materials science, geophysics and the mechanics of the Earth's crust. A major part of the book is concerned with the subject with which he is most closely associated, namely the behaviour of dislocations in crystals. The contributions are mainly of two types. There are reviews of Sir Charles' work, concentrating on his original ideas and extensions of his theories that have been made by other researchers. There are also original contributions describing the outcome of new and ongoing research, showing that Sir Charles' pioneering work is still producing important results. Also included are reminiscences of Sir Charles' life and work at Bristol and elsewhere, with many anecdotes demonstrating his unique approach to research and teaching. Because of the wide-ranging nature of Sir Charles Frank's work, this collection of essays will be of great interest to scientists in a wide range of fields.

There is a continuing growth of interest in the computer simulation of materials at the atomic scale, using a variety of academic and commercial computer programs. In all such programs there is some physical model of the inter-atomic forces, which may be based on something as simple as a pair interaction, such as the Lennard-Jones model, or as complex as a self-consistent, all-electron solution of the quantum mechanical problem. For a student or researcher, the basis of such models is often shrouded in mystery. It is usually unclear how well founded they are, since it is hard to find a discussion of the physical assumptions that have been made in their construction. The lack of clear understanding of the scope and limitations of a given model may lead to its innocent misuse, resulting either in unfair criticism of the model or in the dissemination of nonsensical results. In the present book, models of inter-atomic forces are derived from a common physical basis, namely the density functional theory. The interested reader will be able to follow the detailed derivation of pairwise potentials in simple metals, tight-binding models from the simplest to the most sophisticated (self-consistent) kind, and various ionic models. The book is self-contained, requiring no more background than provided by an undergraduate quantum mechanics course. It aims to furnish the reader with a critical appreciation of the broad range of models in current use, and to provide the tools for understanding other variants that are described in the literature. Some of the material is new, and some pointers are given to possible future avenues of model development.

Dislocations are lines of irregularity in the structure of a solid analogous to the bumps in a badly laid carpet. Like these bumps they can be easily moved, and they provide the most important mechanism by which the solid can be deformed. They also have a strong influence on crystal growth and on the electronic properties of semiconductors. · Influence of dislocations on piezoelectric behavior · New mechanisms for hardening in twinned crystals · Bringing theories of martensite transformation into agreement · Atomic scale motion of dislocations in electron microscopy · Dislocation patterns deduced from X-ray diffraction · Role of dislocations in friction · Dislocation motion in quasicrystals

Medicinal Chemistry of Anticancer Drugs, Second Edition, provides an updated treatment from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design, focusing on the mechanism of action of antitumor drugs from the molecular level, and on the relationship between chemical structure and chemical and biochemical reactivity of antitumor agents. Antitumor chemotherapy is a very active field of research, and a huge amount of information on the topic is generated every year. Cytotoxic chemotherapy is gradually being supplemented by a new generation of drugs that recognize specific targets on the surface or inside cancer cells, and resistance to antitumor drugs continues to be investigated. While these therapies are in their infancy, they hold promise of more effective therapies with fewer side effects. Although many books are available that deal with clinical aspects of cancer chemotherapy, this book provides a sorely needed update from the point of view of medicinal chemistry and drug design. Presents information in a clear and concise way using a large number of figures Historical background provides insights on how the process of drug discovery in the anticancer field has evolved Extensive references to primary literature

Bacon and Osetsky present an atomistic model of dislocation-particle interactions in metal systems, including irradiated materials. This work is important in simulating actual behavior, removing earlier reliance on assumed mechanisms for dislocation motion. New mechanisms for dislocation generation under shock loading are presented by Meyers et al. These models provide a basis for understanding the constitutive behavior of shocked material. Saada and Dirras provide a new perspective on the Hall-Petch relation, with particular emphasis on nanocrystals. Of particular significance, deviations from the traditional stress proportional to the square-root of grain size relation are explained. Robertson et al consider a number of effects of hydrogen on plastic flow and provide a model that provides an explanation of the broad range of properties. . Flow stress of metal systems with particle hardening, including radiation effects New model for dislocation kinetics under shock loading Explanation of effects of nanoscale grain size on strength Mechanism of hydrogen embrittlement in metal alloys~
