This unique compendium presents a comprehensive and self-contained theory of material development under imperfect information
and its applications. The book describes new approaches to synthesis and selection of materials with desirable characteristics.
Such approaches provide the ability of systematic and computationally effective analysis in order to predict composition,
structure and related properties of new materials.The volume will be a useful advanced textbook for graduate students. It
is also suitable for academicians and practitioners who wish to have fundamental models in new material synthesis and selection.
