## Abstract

Beside an explanation of macroscopic factors as surface stress and surface energy atomistic properties of surfaces and interfaces such as relaxation, reconstruction and defects are discussed. In this context the mathematical description of two-dimensional lattices and superstructures is introduced within the frame of the reciprocal space. Structural models of solid-solid interfaces as well as film growth mechanisms including experimental studies and corresponding analysis techniques are presented.
