"More than 4,000 articles written by more than 700 specialists make up this unique and long awaited reference work on solid state physics. The articles are highly scientific and aimed at upper-division undergraduate and graduate students and researchers who want information about subjects outside their own areas of expertise. Originally published in Russian (1996-98), this set will be welcome and useful to a somewhat narrow audience. The articles are well written and cover many topics not found in most reference books in solid state physics." J. O. Christensen, Brigham Young University in: Choice, Jan 05 "Until the publication of the Encyclopedic Dictionary of Solid State Physics with Professor Viktor G. Barâyakhtar as its General Editor, no such resource was available to the scientific community. The task of making this encyclopedia accessible to non-Russian readers was undertaken by Academic Press with Professor Charles P. Poole Jr. in the role of the General Editor for the English translation. Both the publisher and the editor deserve the gratitude of the condensed matter community for bringing this project to fruition." Alexei A. Maradudin, Professor Condensed Matter Theory, University of California, Irvine, USA
