Theory and Application of Morphological Analysis: Fine Particles and Surfaces

This book is one in a series dedicated to fine particle science and technology. Topics covered in the book include the role of definitions, concepts, hypothesis, and laws; morphological analysis of fine particles and surfaces; analytical three-dimensional representations of particle and surface morphologies; the problem of invariance with respect to rotational transformations, as well as transformations characterized by reflection and inversion; matrix mechanics of particle characterization; and general applications of morphological analysis in other areas of science.
