About this book

Introduction

This book is a response to an evident demand for a university textbook on ferroelectricity. The authors discuss the current understanding of the physical nature of ferroelectric phenomena in a consistent and logical form using both phenomenological and microscopic approaches. They present not a descriptive but a conceptual view on the phenomenon and its position in the framework of the more general problem of structural phase transitions. Moreover, the book provides a basis for better understanding of the structural phase transitions themselves. It should be emphasized that the book is self-sufficient in the sense that there are no words like "it can be shown" or "it is easy to see" in it. The level of the book is appropriate for students who seek a deeper understanding of ferroelectric phenomena in dielectrics.
