Abstract

Various theoretical methods of investigating the properties of defects in crystalline media will be explored in this chapter. In particular emphasis will be placed on methods based on discrete models using inter-atomic potentials and computer simulation. However these methods rely heavily on earlier techniques based on geometrical and continuum models, which are also described. All models of defects must of course be developed from an understanding of the properties of perfect crystals. Therefore in the present section some of the relevant basic definitions are summarised. The types of defect which can arise in crystals are then discussed in general terms and the main experimental techniques which have been used to provide information on defects are outlined. Subsequent sections deal with geometrical, continuum and discrete theories of defects and finally various relationships between the theories are discussed.
