The poems are drawn mainly from the conventional Manyoshu, Kokinshu and Hyakunin Isshu collections, yet there also are examplaes of haiku and different later varieties. The sound of the japanese texts i reproduced in Romaji script and the names of the poets within the calligraphy of Ukai Uchiyama. The translator's advent provides us simple historical past at the historical past and nature of jap poetry, that is supplemented by way of notes at the person poets and an in depth bibliography.

One is the real (imperfect) crystal; the other is an ideally perfect crystal of the same crystal structure; the latter is called the reference crystal. The real crystal would be identical with the reference crystal if all the imperfections were eliminated (b) (a) b*- (d) (c) The cut is different FIG. 1 Four different ways of making the same dislocation. in each case; the Burgers vector (relative displacement of the two sides of the cut) is the same. In a and d only pure slip is required; in b and c atoms must be added to fill the gap.
One might ask, "Why not picture every dislocation in terms of slip? " The answer is that slip provides an slip adequate picture for a stationary dislocation or a dislocation moving on plane; slip, however, cannot represent motion normal to the slip A dislocation in motion is, in fact, sweeping out a cut whose sides plane. have been displaced by b. If the area swept out is not parallel to b, then the motion requires mass transport (by diffusion of vacancies or inter- its slip stitial Chap. atoms).
The dislocation is normal to the plane of the figure, (110). Solid and open circles represent parallel neighboring planes in different elevation. For example Fig. 2 applies to the (100) atomic planes in facecentered cubic; however, a parallel plane of atoms in different elevation should be added to complete the picture in face-centered cubic, see Prob. 2. 1 When the slip plane contains two t vectors, it is again helpful to draw the atomic planes above and below the slip plane. 9 can be transformed to represent other structures by changing the squares to parallelograms and displacing the two planes so that they have the proper relation in the unslipped state.
