In the programme of the symposium was written: "The International Union of Theoretical and Applied Me­ chanics has taken the initiative to organize the sympo­ sium. As the name of IUTAM implies, the organization brings forward achievements within the field of theore­ tical mechanics for application in science and engineer­ ing. According to the rules of IUTAM that only invited persons can attend, all lecturers and participants have been ap­ pOinted by the members of the scientific committee. To facilitate contact among the attending persons, it has been decided to restrict the total number to 85 persons including the lecturers. Only one session is planned, making it possible for everybody to attend all lectures. Most scientists and engineers have realized that the knowledge attained by extensive basic research is essen­ tial in order to solve technological problems. In the process of acquiring this knowledge we often fail to un­ derstand that scientific progress is only achieved by two main principles: (1) By studying the scientific litera­ ture and applying or improving the theories in order to predict behaviour and forces correctly, or (2) by re­ jecting existing theories and developing new ways to cope with the problem, resulting in a more differenti­ ated and, hopefully, more exact theory. Ice seems to be a simple material, but it is in fact so complex and strange that it is only in the latest dec­ ades that we have come to know some of the natural laws governing its behaviour.

This monograph provides an account of the physics and chemistry of ice. Informed by research from physicists, chemists and glaciologists, the book places emphasis on the basic physical properties of ice, the modes of nucleation and growth of ice, and the interpretation of these phenomena in terms of molecular structure.

This monograph summarizes knowledge of the mechanics of ice. It is concerned principally with the effect of stress on the mechanical properties of ice, including elasticity, anelasticity, sound propagation, plastic deformation and creep in single crystals and in polycrystalline ice, fracture, and recrystallization and grain growth that accompanies plastic deformation. The monograph also includes a comprehensive bibliography.

Originally published in 1970, this book gives a comprehensive account of the properties of ice, the connections between them and the way in which they derive from the structure of the water molecule and the small mass of the proton. The properties are discussed in terms of quantum mechanics and solid state theory with emphasis on physical principles rather than on theoretical models. The book is intended as an exemplification of the principles of chemical physics for beginning graduate students in physics of physical chemistry and as a text and reference book on the properties of ice for research workers in glaciology, cloud physics, meteorology and associated fields. Although the author assumes a familiarity with fundamental physics, he has taken some trouble to make his account self-contained by reference to the underlying principles in every case or by more detailed discussion where the application is not a standard one.
