Knowledge for material science. Part I

  • 1 Bulgarian Academy of Science, Sofia, Bulgaria


This article discusses the modern knowledge necessary for materials science. Modern scientific knowledge covers on the basis of the greatest scientific results; complete scientific knowledge: mathematics; mathematical physics; quantum mechanics (not relativistic and relativistic); quantum physics; quantum chemistry. Theory and modern tools for testing and monitoring with increasing resolution. High technologies. A research – type methodology has been obtained, but this methodology is also focused on interactions with business. Business research is not fundamental, but it can be very lengthy.
