A condensed review of casting, deformation, and annealing textures of polycrystalline metals and alloys is presented. It is intended to provide an informative but simplified reference for researchers, engineers, and students who are seeking quick information on the development of textures in various metal objects, and for those who are primarily interested in the textures of non-metallic materials, but wish to acquire a general background knowledge on the texture formation in metals.
