Krzysztof Sztwiertnia is a professor at the Institute of Metallurgy and Materials Science, Polish Academy of Sciences (IMMS PAS). He graduated at the Academy of Mining and Metallurgy in Krakow, Poland. After graduation, he worked successively in the IMMS PAS, the Institut für Werkstoffe der Technischen Universität Braunschweig, in Germany, and again in the IMMS PAS. His research interests span various areas of crystallographic orientation-related investigations. In particular, he is interested in deformation and recrystallization processes in metals, as well as methods of measurement, description and analysis of texture, and microstructure of polycrystalline materials. Professor K. Sztwiertnia is an author and co-author of over 100 research papers and two monographs.

Recrystallization shows selected results obtained during the last few years by scientists who work on recrystallization-related issues. These scientists offer their knowledge from the perspective of a range of scientific disciplines, such as geology and metallurgy. The authors emphasize that the progress in this particular field of science is possible today thanks to the coordinated action of many research groups that work in materials science, chemistry, physics, geology, and other sciences. Thus, it is possible to perform a comprehensive analysis of the scientific problem. The analysis starts from the selection of appropriate techniques and methods of characterization. It is then combined with the development of new tools in diagnostics, and it ends with modeling of phenomena.
