About the Series Volume Editors

Takeo Fujiwara Series Volume Editor

Takeo Fujiwara has been working on quasicrystals since soon after the discovery of quasicrystals and contributing to developing new ideas on quasicrystals: TF are working on mainly electronic structures of quasiperiodic systems and real quasicrystalline materials and YI are working on “phason”-related instability of quasicrystals as well as electronic structures.
