This book is designed to give students a thorough understanding of the traditional knowledge of crystal structures: lattices, unit cells, close packing, octahedral and tetrahedral holes and their occupation by various ions in the well-known crystal structures. This descriptive work is augmented by free-electron and band theory. Links to other branches of chemistry and practical examples are emphasized, as are the links back to band theory and crystal structures.
