Abstract

Solid-state physics used to be a branch of physics, and it is replete with theories bearing the names of Hermann von Helmholtz, Eduard Grüneisen, Peter De bye, Gustav Mie, Max Born, Johannes van der Waals and Albert Einstein. The study of the states of matter at extremes of pressure and temperatures was a branch of solid-state physics. Nowadays, these fields are called condensed-matter physics or mineral physics and are in the domain of materials scientists, geophysicists and other custodians of classical physics. The study of equations of state is now a branch of materials physics and geophysics, and it has reached such a level of theoretical and experimental maturity that this reference and textbook on the subject is timely and welcome.
