Bharat Bhushan combines material from his 'Principles and Applications of Tribology' with new material that deals with MEMS applications and the cutting-edge discipline of nanotribology in this textbook for engineers and students of engineering.

In the past we published a subset of the �Springer Handbook of Nanotechnology� in two editions as graduate textbook �Nanomechanics and Nanotribology�. However, the size of the book grew to 1536pages in the second edition. In addition, the sales of were quite low: The second edition sold 322 copies in two years at 119�. Therefore we decided to split the book into two parts and have both POD suitable. The natural breaking point is the devision in fundamental nanomechanical measurement methods (AFM, STM) in the first volume and the consequences of Nanomechanics for Tribology and Lubrication.
