Review of the hardback: 'Wherever possible, Abeyaratne and Knowles connect phenomenological and experimental results. Aside from comparisons between analytical predictions and experiments on shape-memory wires, the authors use their framework to model experiments involving phase transformations induced by high-speed impact. To some extent, links between atomistic and continuum models for kinetics are also explored. This book is a unique, valuable, and elegantly written contribution to the literature on phase transformations. It should be included in the library of any mechanician, applied mathematician, or material scientist interested in martensitic alloys. Others working on broader classes of phase transformations will also find this book to be worthwhile reading. It is physically well-motivated, mathematically sound, and eminently clear.'
