3.072 Symmetry, Structure and Tensor Properties of Materials

Class Info

Studies the underlying structures of materials and deepens understanding of the relationship between the properties of materials and their structures. Topics include lattices, point groups, and space groups in both two and three dimensions; the use of symmetry in the tensor representation of crystal properties; and the relationship between crystalline structure and properties, including transport properties, piezoelectricity, and elasticity. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.

This class has 3.016, and 18.03 as prerequisites.

3.072 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by E. Fitzgerald.

Lecture occurs 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 2-135.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
