Introduction to Materials Modelling

The book, edited by Zoe Barber, is based on a one-year, interdisciplinary Masters Course given by the Materials Science and Metallurgy Department of Cambridge University. The course is designed for graduates from the sciences, mathematics, and engineering. It covers techniques spanning a huge range of length scales, from atoms to engineering structures.
