Book Title: Physical Properties of Crystals: Their Representation by Tensors and Matrices

Author: J. F. Nye

Book Description:

Symmetry is a beautiful aspect of nature that illuminates science. Identifying symmetry in a problem slices through it to the core. This book is a must read for any physical scientist. It shows how every property is a tensor, and how without a single measurement, you can say a lot about a material just by knowing its symmetry.
