Understanding the origin of electrical properties of alloys is critical to the development of new materials. Dr. Rossiter blends theoretical and experimental results without relying on detailed quantum mechanics. After introducing the basic concepts of atomic and magnetic correlations, he explains their microstructural consequences. Later chapters deal with the effects of such correlations on electrical resistivity. Examples and applications are given in discrete sections, which allow the uninterrupted development of theory for each specific problem.
