Emphasis is laid on the layered or quasi-two-dimensional structure of these compounds, which provides an exciting arena for testing physical concepts in lower dimensions. The chapters in this volume, all of which have been written by internationally recognized experts in the field, cover the following topics: the structure and phase transitions of intercalate atoms and molecules in graphite, the physics of staging formation and staging transitions, the lattice dynamics of these compounds as determined by inelastic neutron scattering and optical methods, the diffusivity of the guest species, mesoscopic properties such as domain structures and stacking arrangements, and the synthesis of new compounds. The reviews provide a comprehensive overview of the current status of the field of two- dimensional physics.
