 Summary

Primarily aiming to give undergraduate students an introduction to solid state physics, Physics of Electrons in Solids explains the properties of solids through the study of noninteracting electrons in solids. While each chapter contains a qualitative introduction to the main ideas behind solid state physics, it also provides detailed calculations of utmost importance to graduate students.The introductory chapters contain crystallographic and quantum prerequisites. The central chapters are devoted to the quantum states of an independent electron in a crystal and to the equilibrium properties of conductors, insulators, and semiconductors. The final chapters contain insights into the assumptions made throughout, briefly describing the origin of ferromagnetism and superconductivity. The book ends with exercises and solutions based on a physics course taught by the author at Ecole Polytechnique.

 Summary

This is an introductory book on solid state physics. It is a translation of a Hebrew version, written for the Open University in Israel. Aimed mainly for selfstudy, the book contains appendices with the necessary background, explains each calculation in detail and contains many solved problems. The bulk of the book discusses the basic concepts of periodic crystals, including lattice structures, radiation scattering off crystals, crystal bonding, vibrations of crystals, and electronic properties. On the other hand, the book also presents brief reviews of advanced topics, e.g. quasicrystals, soft condensed matter, mesoscopic physics and the quantum Hall effect. There are also many specific examples drawn from modern research topics, e.g. perovskite oxides relevant for high temperature superconductivity, graphene, electrons in low dimensions and more.

 Summary

Solid State Physics provides a broad introduction to some of the principal areas of the physical phenomena in solid materials and is aimed broadly at undergraduate students of physics and engineering related subjects. The physical properties of materials are intimately related to the crystalline symmetry of atoms as well as the atomic Species present. This includes the electronic, mechanical, magnetic and optical properties of all materials. These subjects are treated in depth and aim to provide the reader with the tools necessary for an understanding of the varied phenomena of materials. Particular emphasis is given to the reaction of materials to specific stimuli, such as the application of electric and magnetic fields. Nanotechnologies are based on the formation of nanosized elements and structures. The final chapter of the book provides a broad introduction to the topic and uses some of the main tools of solid state physics to explain the behavior of nanomaterials and why they are of importance for future technologies.

This is an advanced book on solid state physics with a pedagogical derivation of classic topics that immediately facilitates an examination of modern topics. While some mathematical techniques are present, this book focuses primarily on physics and a clear presentation of the key concepts that underlie such current research problems such as insulatorsuperconductor transitions and the quantum Hall effect. Second Keypoint: Professor Phillips provides an accurate exploration and solid foundation for students and researchers of this fastgrowing field.. Solid state physics continues to be the fastestgrowing subdiscipline in physics. This much anticipated new book provides ample background that underpins the principles of solid state physics, and moves quickly to an overview of current research in this fastmoving field. Upper division undergraduates and graduate students in physics who wish to pursue solid state physics research must master old topics, as well as problems of current interest. This book serves that purpose, and fills students' needs. }This is a modern book in solid state physics that should be accessible to anyone who has a working level of solid state physics at the Kittel or Ashcroft/Mermin level. The key point of this book is the development of classic topics in a way that makes it easy to present current topics. The book starts with the noninteracting electron gas and develops in great depth such topics of immense currency as the Kondo problem, Bosonizations, local moments in metals, quantum phase transitions, insulatorsuperconductor and insulatormetal transitions, and the quantum Hall effect. The presentation of these topics starts from the beginning where no prior knowledge is assumed. Hence, this book should be extremely useful to those seeking an introduction tot he practice of modern solid state physics. }.

This book is aimed at first and second year undergraduates taking a course in solid state physics. It is suitable for physics or engineering students. It does not assume any prior knowledge of quantum theory. The book covers all of the standard topics in solid state physics, i.e. crystal structure, mechanical, electrical, thermal, and magnetic properties, metals, semiconductors, dielectrics, superconductors and amorphous solids, and also includes an introductory chapter on chemical bonds and a chapter on polymers. The text is largely nonmathematical, but questions are integrated into the text to encourage readers to tackle the problemsolving aspects of the subject. Worked examples and a complete set of detailed solutions are included. More challenging topics (either mathematically or conceptually more difficult) are treated in optional sections.

 Description
 Book — xi, 488 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.
 Summary

Introduction to SolidState Theory is a textbook for graduate students of physics and materials science. It also provides the theoretical background needed by physicists doing research in pure solidstate physics and its applications to electrical engineering. The fundamentals of solidstate theory are based on a description by delocalized and localized states and  within the concept of delocalized states  by elementary excitations. The development of solidstate theory within the last ten years has shown that by a systematic introduction of these concepts, large parts of the theory can be described in a unified way. This form of description gives a "pictorial" formulation of many elementary processes in solids, which facilitates their understanding.
