About this book

This handbook is a five-volume reference for computational material scientists, serving a steadily growing community at the intersection of two mainstreams of global research, materials technology and computational science. Since its first publication in 2006 it has set a standard toward defining the broad community and stimulating its growth. The second edition reflects the significant developments that have occurred in all aspects of computational materials research, ranging from fundamental concepts to increasingly more realistic models and more powerful multiscale simulation methods in the intervening 10 years. This new edition has a three-fold objective:      

• Strengthen the foundational attributes of materials theory, modeling and simulation wherever appropriate.

• Broaden the scope of HMM to include challenges and opportunities in emerging areas of interdisciplinary interest.

• Focus on applications to demonstrate and expand on the capabilities of current models and simulation methods.

The Handbook is organized in two parts. This is part I: Methods, focused on theory and modeling. This part extends the content of the first edition with the more recently introduced algorithms as well as modeling and simulation strategies. The development follows a multiscale approach with emphasis on electronic-structure, atomistic, and mesoscale methods, as well as mathematical analysis and rate processes.

About the authors

Wanda Andreoni is Emeritus professor of physics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL). She has been involved in computational materials science since the early days of her research activity, in both academic and industrial institutions, covering also teaching, organizational and research managing positions. Regarding editorial work, she was co-editor of Europhysics Letters (1990-1993) and Editor of "The Chemical Physics of Fullerenes 10 (and 5) Years Later," NATO ASI Series E: Applied Sciences, Vol. 316 (Kluwer, 1996), and of “The Physics of Fullerene-Based and Fullerene-Related Materials”, Series on the Physics and Chemistry of Materials with Low Dimensional Structures.

Sidney Yip served on the faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology since 1965, becoming emeritus in 2009. His early research was in theoretical studies of particle and fluid transport. He has been broadly involved in atomistic modeling and simulation of materials for more than four decades. Working with a team of 17 subject editors, he edited the Handbook of Materials Modeling, Springer, 2005. He has coauthored the monographs Foundations of Neutron Transport Theory (1967), Neutron Molecular Spectroscopy (1968), Molecular Hydrodynamics (1980), and co-edited Spectroscopy in Biology and Chemistry, Neutron, X-Ray, Laser (1974), and Materials Interfaces – Atomic-Level Structure and Properties (1992).  Recently he completed the text Nuclear Radiation Interactions (2014).
