Abstract : Results of broad inter- and intra-disciplinary research on metastable micrcrystalline and glassy alloys are reported. Progress is noted in processing of R.S. aluminum alloys and in understanding and improving their corrosion resistance and mechanical properties. Ne metallic glasses with improved magnetic properties are described. Significant advances in understanding of bonding, glass formation stability and transformation in glassy materials through molecular-orbital cluster calculations are summarized. (Author)
