About the Author

Hubert Irwin Aaronson (Hub) received his BS, MS, and Ph.D. in metallurgical engineering at Carnegie Institute of Technology, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (now Carnegie Mellon University). He was a worldwide leader in the field of phase transformations of metals and alloys for more than half a century. He published more than 300 technical papers, organized numerous symposia and conferences, served a number of technical committees, and was recognized with many awards. He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering, Washington, District of Columbia; a fellow of both The Minerals, Metals and Material Society and ASM International; and an honorary member of the Japan Institute of Metals, Sendai, Japan. As R.F. Mehl Professor Emeritus at Carnegie Mellon University, Hub continued his professional activities to the very end until his passing in December 2005.

Masato Enomoto received his BS and MS in physics from Tokyo University, and his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He received many honors and awards both in the United States and in Japan for his research on phase transformations in metallic materials. He authored a book, Phase Transformations in Metals, in Japanese, and served on the editorial boards of several technical journals, including ISIJ International as editor-in-chief. He was elected a fellow of ASM International. He is currently a professor of materials science and engineering, Ibaraki University, Hitachi City, Japan.

Jong K. Lee received his BS from Seoul National University, Seoul, South Korea; his MS from the University of Washington, Seattle; and his Ph.D. from Stanford University, California. He taught at Michigan Technological University, Houghton, for over three decades. He is a fellow of ASM International, and a foreign member of both the Korean Academy of Science and Technology and the National Academy of Engineering of Ko
