We present a review of semiconductor surface reconstruction. Experimental and theoretical results on atomic geometry, electronic states, phonon modes, and bonding are presented for clean cleaved, clean epitaxially grown, overlayer covered, surfactant mediated epitaxially grown, and defect induced reconstructed semiconductor surfaces. Energetic aspects of reconstructions are discussed using empirical as well as first-principles theoretical approaches.
