From the reviews: "This book on Moire phenomena in aperiodic layers appears as a second volume of the same author after the one dedicated to the more familiar periodic case . the knowledge of the first volume is not required for the understanding of the second volume, which covers, so to say, the whole field. The exposition is exemplary. Each chapter is complemented by many nicely commented problems and exercises, and in one of the appendices one finds the glossary of the main terms." (Aloysio Janner, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1130 (8), 2008) "The present book is devoted to the theory of the Moire phenomenon (MP) for aperiodic layers. the book is self-contained, the theory is clearly presented, there are a lot of interesting examples and exercises, and all terms are carefully defined and explained. the present book is an excellent monograph on GP domains. will constitute a definitive reference on Moire effects for years to come." (D. Stanomir, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 g)"Vom Verlag:
Since the first edition of this book was published several new developments have been made in the field of the moiré theory. The most important of these concern new results that have recently been obtained on moiré effects between correlated aperiodic (or random) structures, a subject that was completely absent in the first edition, and which appears now for the first time in a second, separate volume. This also explains the change in the title of the present volume, which now includes the subtitle “Volume I: Periodic Layers”. This subtitle has been added to clearly distinguish the present volume from its new companion, which is subtitled “Volume II: Aperiodic Layers”. It should be noted, however, that the new subtitle of the present volume may be somewhat misleading, since this book also treats (in Chapters 10 and 11) moiré effects between repetitive layers, which are, in fact, geometric transformations of periodic layers, that are generally no longer periodic in themselves. The most suitable subtitle for the present volume would therefore have been “Periodic or Repetitive Layers”, but in the end we have decided on the shorter version.
