This book is a collection of 31 papers on geologic materials and synthetic analogues formed under the high-pressure and/or high-temperature conditions that prevail in the lower crust and the mantle. During the 3-year period 1978–1980, the Japanese government granted roughly $3.5 million for equipment and supplies to several Japanese national universities for the investigations. Scientists of diverse disciplines participated in the program, which was coordinated by the editor of this book, Ichiro Sunagawa (Tohoku University, Japan), an expert on crystal growth. Initially, 40 papers were published in a special issue of a Japanese journal, as the grant reports, and then selected papers were updated and incorporated into this English language volume. The papers are predominantly textbook-style reviews, but some of them present additional new data or interpretations. Three to eight papers are grouped by subject in each of seven chapters.
