This highly readable, popular textbook for upper undergraduates and graduates comprehensively covers the fundamentals of crystallography and symmetry, applying these concepts to a large range of materials. New to this edition are more streamlined coverage of crystallography, additional coverage of magnetic point group symmetry and updated material on extraterrestrial minerals and rocks. New exercises at the end of chapters, plus over 500 additional exercises available online, allow students to check their understanding of key concepts and put into practice what they have learnt. Over 400 illustrations within the text help students visualise crystal structures and more abstract mathematical objects, supporting more difficult topics like point group symmetries. Historical and biographical sections add colour and interest by giving an insight into those who have contributed significantly to the field. Supplementary online material includes password-protected solutions, over 100 crystal structure data files, and Powerpoints of figures from the book.

Michael E. McHenry is Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, with an appointment in Physics, at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, USA. He received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering in 1988 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, before which he spent three years working in industry as a process engineer. Also an accomplished writer, he is Publication Chair for the Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (MMM) Conference.
