Intro

edX: Symmetry, Structure and Tensor Properties of Materials

 with  Richard Taylor and Eugene Fitzgerald

In 3.072x: Symmetry, Structure, and Tensor Properties of Materials, you will study the underlying structures of materials and deepen your 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. Two course projects will allow students to explore their particular interests in greater depth.  

FAQ

Who can register for this course?
Unfortunately, learners from Iran, Sudan and the Crimea region of Ukraine will not be able to register for this course at the present time. While edX has received a license from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer courses to learners from Iran and Sudan our license does not cover this course. Separately, EdX has applied for a license to offer courses to learners in the Crimea region of Ukraine, but we are awaiting a determination from OFAC on that application. We are deeply sorry the U.S. government has determined that we have to block these learners, and we are working diligently to rectify this situation as soon as possible.
