About these proceedings
This book contains 18 invited contributions to the first Inter national Symposium on Order-Disorder Transformations in Alloys+. They cover the major aspects of this group of phase transformations. Although structural order-disorder transformations have been investigated for over 50 years the invited papers, the research papers - whose titles and authors are listed in the appendix - and the discussions at the Symposium have demonstrated very active continued interest and con siderable recent progress in the subject. This is true for theoretical work as weIl as for experimental studies and for the development of materials whose properties result from order-disorder transformations. + Some major national conferences on ordering were held in the USA and in the USSR in recent years; the proceedings are available in the following pUblications: Local Atomic Arrangements Studied by X-Ray Diffraction, Gordon & Breach, New York 1966 2 Ordered Alloys, Claitor's Publ. Div. , Baton Rouge, La. 1970 3 Summaries of the Proceedings of the 2nd Union Conference on Atomic Ordering and its Influence on the Properties of Alloys, Naukova Dumka, Kiev 1966 4 Atomic Ordering and its Influence on the Properties of Alloys, Naukova Dumka, Kiev 1968 5 Atomic Ordering and its Influence on the Properties of Alloys, TGU, Tomsk 1973 111 In assembling these papers it vas attempted to compile a systematic and approximately complete compendium of the sUbject.
