The book is devoted to a systematic description of physical phenomena in ferroelectrics and antiferroelectrics. Serious attention is given to thermodynamic, dynamic and model theories of ferroelectricity, which are set forth in a form understandable to a wide range of readers. Results of experimental studies and their correspondence to theoretical representations are discussed in detail using several of the most typical ferroelectrics as an example. Considerable space is set aside for the study of ferroelectrics with the aid of new methods radiospectroscopy, Messbauer effect, scattering of slow neutrons, electrooptics, etc. A review of ferroelectric and antiferroelectric materials is given including ferroelectrics with magnetic orderliness and with a blurred phase transition.
