Although several fine volumes have been published on special topics in glass, "Fundamentals of Inorganic Glasses" is the first book to provide the breadth required of a comprehensive undergraduate textbook. In a clear tutorial style, this volume provides comprehensive coverage of the composition, structure, and properties of inorganic glasses. Designed to serve as the primary text for 'glass science' courses at the upper-undergraduate level, this book facilitates learning with a clear discussion of fundamental concepts, chapter-ending problem sets, an emphasis on key ideas, and timely notes on suggested readings. Professor Varshneya has filled a gap in the existing literature by providing a textbook that is uniquely comprehensive while striving always to help the student develop a clear understanding of the fundamentals underlying glass science. This book clearly develops fundamental concepts. It leads the reader through areas where a deeper understanding is needed. It presents necessary mathematics in a readable manner. It introduces numerous and interesting real-world examples that give the reader insight into application of the material covered in the text. It concludes chapters with problem sets and suggested readings to facilitate self-study.
