Recent dramatic progress in solid state physics, as highlighted by novel phenomena in semiconductor heterostructures or intercalation compounds and by high Tc superconductivity, is a fascinating outcome of the interaction between the physicists and chemists in various fields working on low-dimensional systems. The strength of the present volume lies in the fact that it gives a survey of the frontier of various classes of low-dimensional systems with articles by leading scientists from the international community. The volume has been conceived as a tribute to Professor H. Kamimura to honour his accomplishments upon his retirement from the University of Tokyo. Reflecting his wide spectrum of interests, the topics covered here range from (i) intercalation compounds and layered materials, (ii) 2D systems and superlattices, (iii) high Tc compounds to (iv) surfaces, mesoscopic systems, quasi-1D systems and point defects, thus ranging from 2D down to 0D, from superconductors to insulators, and from physics to quantum chemistry. The remarkable richness of subjects and approaches treated here will enable the readers to discover intriguing common and distinct key concepts in different classes of systems. This addition to the series Physics and Chemistry of Materials with Low-Dimensional Structures will thus prove to be fundamental to an exploration of the new horizons in condensed-matter physics and chemistry in the 1990s.
