This book discusses transport processes of ionic species at an advanced level. It is meant for postgraduate students and researchers in electrochemistry and membrane science and technology. The book can also be used as a reference work for ionic transport problems.
While the standard solid state topics are covered, the basic ones often have more detailed derivations than is customary (with an empasis on crystalline solids). Several recent topics are introduced, as are some subjects normally included only in condensed matter physics.
Chapter 15 focuses on the fundamentals of corrosion and stress corrosion cracking, covering forms of corrosion, corrosion thermodynamics, corrosion kinetics, polarization theory, passivity, crevice corrosion, and stress corrosion cracking.
Offers a concise, modern introduction to semiconductor physics, presenting all the basic information necessary to understand semiconductors, along with some of the latest theories and developments.
