Providing students as well as engineers and researchers with a must-have insight into the complexities of surface structure and behavior, this monograph extends beyond the usual introductory books, presenting concentrated knowledge on the surface science of metals, and connecting fundamentals with actual applications. Beginning with explanations of the intricacies of surfaces and their differences to bulk, it takes the reader through the vital steps towards macroscopic metallic components as well as surface nanostructuring. In so doing, it makes use of theory, experimental techniques, examples, and modeling to facilitate a firm understanding.

Author Biography - Valim Levitin
Valim Levitin is Professor and the Head of an internationally renowned Research Group at the National Technical University in Ukraine. He obtained his Ph.D: from Ural State University in Sverdlovsk, Russia, in 1961 and after several positions as research engineer became Professor of Physics at the National Technical University of Ukraine in Zaporozhye. His research focuses on problems of atom vibrations in solids, work functions, the physical bases of creep and fatigue as well as X-ray and TEM studies of the fundamentals of materials strength. He holds 12 patents and has published more than 130 peer-reviewed articles and two books, most recently High Temperature Strain of Metals and Alloys, also with Wiley-VCH. Stephan Loskutov is Professor of Physics at the National Technical University of Ukraine in Zaporozhye. He began his academic career in 1981 as Assistant Lecturer and became Assistant Professor at the NTU in 1993. He obtained his D.Sc. in metal physics from the Kurdyumov Institute of Metal Physics in Kiev in 2005. His research interests are focused on metal and alloy surfaces, materials fatigue and the computer simulation of crystals.
