In this book, we have discussed the local atomic structure of metallic glasses that possess “disordered” amorphous structure without any periodicity. Even for short-range atomic configurations, the structure of metallic glasses exhibits considerable variety since the metallic bonding has fewer chemical constraints than covalent systems such as silica glasses.
