This monograph is for the physicist, engineer, material scientist and graduate student concerned with solids (and fluids) at low temperatures. The authors, respectively a theorist and an experimentalist with many years of cryogenic experience, have collaborated to cover the closely related areas of heat capacity, thermal expansion and elastic stiffness. They include chapters on the fundamental principles, the observed behavior of representative materials - cubic crystals, anisotropic solids, glasses, polymers, magnetic materials, superconductors, composites, etc., measurement techniques and tables of data on technical and reference materials.
