This quantity and its spouse volumes, entitled Tetrahedrally-Bonded Amorphous Semiconductors and Localization and Metal-Insulator Transitions, are our manner of paying unique tribute to Sir Nevill Mott and to precise our heartfelt needs to him at the celebration of his 80th birthday. Sir Nevill has set the top criteria as a physicist, instructor, and medical chief. Our emotions for him comprise not just the dignity and admiration due an excellent scientist, but additionally a deep affection for a very good man or woman, who possesses a unprecedented blend of remarkable own traits. We thank him for enriching our lives, and we will without end hold loved stories of this noble guy. Scientists most sensible convey their thank you through contributing their techniques and observations to a Festschrift. This one honoring Sir Nevill fills 3 volumes, with actually 1000s of authors assembly a strict time limit. the truth that contributions poured in from all components of the area attests to the foreign solidarity of our clinical neighborhood. it's a tribute to Sir Nevill's stand for peace and realizing, transcending nationwide borders. The editors desire to show their gratitude to Ghazaleh Koefod for her diligence and services in interpreting and typing a number of the papers, in addition to supporting in several alternative routes. The blame for the blunders that stay belongs to the editors.

Joannopoulos Department of Physi~s Massachusetts Institute of Technology Cambridge, Massachusetts INTRODUCTION One of the oldest fundamental problems in condensed matter physics has been the prediction of the crystal structure of solids from first principles. Given only the atomic number of the constituent atoms as input, what are the possible geometric structures of a solid?
