Physics Meets Mineralogy: Condensed Matter Physics in the Geosciences describes the interaction between geophysics and condensed matter physics. Condensed matter physics leads to a 'first-principles' way of looking at crystals, enabling physicists and mineralogists to study the rich and sometimes unexpected behaviour that minerals exhibit under the extreme conditions, such as high pressure and high temperature, found deep within the earth. Leading international researchers from both geosciences and condensed matter physics discuss this interdisciplinary field. An excellent summary for specialists and graduate students researching mineralogy and crystallography.
