Abstract : The author has studied the martensitic transformations and related phenomena, such as shape memory and superelasticity effects, in various ferrous and non-ferrous alloys for 41 years after graduation from a university in 1951. Main research results obtained by his group in the recent 41 years are introduced referring to those by other researchers, and unsolved problems are discussed. Then, future research subjects and their solvable techniques are surveyed with a little dogmatic view.
