Blending rigorous presentation with ease of reading, this is a self-contained textbook on the fundamentals of crystallography, symmetry and diffraction. Emphasis is on combining visual illustrations of crystal structures with the mathematical theory of crystallography. The first half of the book describes the basics of crystallography, discussing bonding, crystal systems, symmetry and concepts of diffraction. The second half is more advanced, focussing on different classes of materials, and building on an understanding of the simpler to more complex atomic structures. Geometric principles and computational techniques are introduced, allowing the reader to gain a full appreciation of material structure, including metallic, ceramic, amorphous, molecular solids and nanomaterials. With over 430 illustrations, 400 homework problems and crystal structure files, this is suitable for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses within materials science and engineering. Additional resources for this title including solutions, data files for crystal structures, and appendices, are available at
