Reviews

... This superb book introduces one to the science of aperiodic structures. I would recommend it to anyone with more than a fleeting interest in taking their education beyond that of the oft-treated-in-undergraduate-courses regular, infinitely repeating, crystal lattice or the periodic Fourier series expansion of repeat structures. Here we have a text which gently introduces the wonderful world of aperiodicity and then takes one on a stroll through some of the scientific examples of interest. ... an excellent book ... Unfamiliar concepts are introduced gently with some nice historical background and one is not often weighed down by too much technical detail. For postgraduate researchers who may wish to familiarise themselves with the fascinating world of aperiodicity, this is a must read. --J.R. Sambles, Contemporary Physics, Vol. 51, Issue 4, July 2010
