I thank Prof. Abinandanan, Department of Materials Engineering, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. He taught me Phase Transformations; and, he hosted me at Bangalore for a few summers while I was preparing these notes. I have benefited a lot from all those discussions I had with him; and, wherever I have managed to implement the suggestions given by him, the quality of these notes have improved considerably. I thank Prof. Rajesh Prasad, Department of Applied Mechanics, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, New Delhi for introducing me to the phase transformations textbook of Raghavan (by presenting me one of his copies). I have benefited greatly from the detailed and very careful and thoughtful comments given by Prof. Udaya Bhat of NIT-Suratkal in preparing these notes.
