Abstract : The present report is an introduction to the subject of plasticity on a microscopic scale. A coherent presentation of the material has been attempted, with the principal aim of drawing attention to significant developments. In the latter context, limitation of space has precluded the discussion of each and every topic that come under the heading of plasticity. Thus, for example, the phenomena of creep, plastic waves and plastic buckling have not been included. However, omission of lengthy descriptions and derivations has enabled the treatment of a reasonably wide range of topics. While the basic concepts are discussed in the first chapter, the subsequent chapters deal with the solution of problems. Here, the choice of problems has been guided by their simplicity in illustrating the theory and are by no means complete. For details of analyses and the treatment of more advanced problems, the reader must refer to the books and papers cited at the end of the report. (Author)
