Chernenko (Institute of Magnetism, Kyiv, Ukraine) presents a collection of 16 reviews and original articles covering "hot" topics in research and development in the materials science of magnetic shape memory. The 16 invited papers, written by some 70 international academics and researchers, cover a range of topics including the phenomenological and microscopic mechanisms of the magnetic shape-memory effect, the physical bases of advanced properties of magnetic shape memory alloys, the structural aspects of martensitic transformations in both ferromagnetic and non- ferromagnetic shape memory alloys, technical applications and actuators utilizing shape memory alloys with considerations on their design principles and discussion of simulation results, as well as general issues such as damping, newly-discovered glassy martensite and modeling. For physicists and materials scientists and graduate students concerned with the research or development aspects of smart materials. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
