Description: A fully updated version of the popular Introduction to Tribology, this book introduces MEMS, nanotribology and magnetic surface storage technologies as well as the breakthroughs in tribology at the nano– and micro– level. Considerations of friction and wear have been fully revised to include recent analysis and data work at the nanoscale level. Friction mechanisms have also been reapproached in light of current developments. Wear mechanisms are also given particular focus and reassessed from current viewpoint.Since the publication of the first edition, Micro– and Nano–tribology has grown substantially and so significant new work on friction, wear and lubrication on nanoscale using atomic force microscopy is approached. Readers are also given an introduction to new significant modeling work in these areas. Furthermore, tribological components and applications and details on micro– nano–components and their applications in bio– and nano–technology give the book an additional dimension.

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.
