This book is a response to an evident demand for a university textbook on ferroelectricity. The authors discuss the current understanding of the physical nature of ferroelectric phenomena in a consistent and logical form using both phenomenological and microscopic approaches. They present not a descriptive but a conceptual view on the phenomenon and its position in the framework of the more general problem of structural phase transitions. Moreover, the book provides a basis for better understanding of the structural phase transitions themselves. The book is self-sufficient and the level is appropriate for students who seek a deeper understanding of ferroelectric phenomena in dielectrics.
