The book contains the contributions from research scientists (experimentalists and theoreticians) who have recently made outstanding systematic investigations with low-temperature properties of solids that are sensitive to quantum tunneling processes. Low-temperature thermodynamic and acoustic properties, optical hole burning, and dielectric properties of different solids, such as amorphous dielectrics (including polymers, superconductors, polycrystalline metals, and metallic and semiconducting crystals) with light impurities (H and D) are reviewed and discussed in terms of interactions with and between tunneling systems. The newest experiments on long-time spectral diffusion and heat…
