Abstract NoteGrain boundaries are a main feature of crystalline materials. They play a key role in determining the properties of materials, especially when grain size decreases and even more so with the current improvements of processing tools and methods that allow us to control various elements in a polycrystal. This book presents the theoretical basis of the study of grain boundaries and aims to open up new lines of research in this area. The treatment is light on mathematical approaches while emphasizing practical examples; the issues they raise are discussed with reference to theories. The general approach of the book has two main goals: to lead the reader from the concept of 'ideal' to 'real' grain boundaries; to depart from established knowledge and address the opportunities emerging through 'grain boundary engineering', the control of morphological and crystallographic features that affect material properties
Contents NotePart I. From grain boundary order to disorder -- Part II. From ideal to real grain boundary -- Part III. From the free to the constrained grain boundary
