In the December 1989 issue of the Journal, the Editors announced that, periodically, collections of articles on
a single topic would be published in the Journal. Topical issues on "Reliability in Multilayer Ceramic Capaci-
tors" included in the December 1989 issue and the "Electronic Structure of Ceramics" included in the Novem-
ber 1990 issue were the first two examples of this new feature of the Journal. This month's issue of the Journal
includes the third topical issue in the series, "Mullite Processing, Structure, and Properties."
Mullite has received much attention during the last decade as a matrix material for high-temperature com-
posite development, as a substrate in multilayer packaging, and as an infrared-transparent window especially
for high-temperature applications. These new interests have sparked extensive studies on the synthesis and
processing of mullite and mullite-based composites by molecular and/or colloidal methods. An international
workshop on mullite held in Tokyo, Japan, in November 1981 covered much of the progress up to the date of
the meeting, and its proceedings have been published by the American Ceramic Society.' Since progress has
