This interdisciplinary work on condensed matter physics, the continuum mechanics of novel materials, and partial differential equations, discusses the mathematical theory of elasticity and hydrodynamics of quasicrystals, as well as its applications. By establishing new partial differential equations of higher order and their solutions under complicated boundary value and initial value conditions, the theories developed here dramatically simplify the solution of complex elasticity problems. Comprehensive and detailed mathematical derivations guide readers through the work. By combining theoretical analysis and experimental data, mathematical studies and practical applications, readers will gain a systematic, comprehensive and in-depth understanding of condensed matter physics, new continuum mechanics and applied mathematics. 

This new edition covers the latest developments in quasicrystal studies. In particular, it pays special attention to the hydrodynamics, soft-matter quasicrystals, and the Poisson bracket method and its application in deriving hydrodynamic equations. These new sections make the book an even more useful and comprehensive reference guide for researchers working in Condensed Matter Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science.

After study in Peking University, Tianyou Fan has begun his academic career in Beijing Institute of Technology, as Assistant and Lecturer (1963-1979), Associate Professor (1980-1985) and Professor (1986-present). He was several times an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow at the Universities of Kaiserlautern and Stuttgart, and held ...

Editorial Reviews

"The book is up to date and its content is sufficient for the exposition and applications under the mechanical effects in the mathematical elasticity of quasicrystals, and hence it could serve as a perfect text for senior undergraduate or first-year graduate students of engineering and applied sciences. . the book is highly recommendable to everyone who is already working on the subject or just starting." (M. Cengiz Dökmeci, zbMATH 1359.74001, 2017)
