This ebook is the 1st of a three-volume sequence written via an identical writer that goals to carry a finished and self-contained account of the sizeable box of solid-state physics. It is going a long way past such a lot vintage texts within the presentation of the houses of solids and experimentally saw phenomena, besides the fundamental recommendations and theoretical tools used to appreciate them and the basic beneficial properties of assorted experimental techniques.
the 1st quantity offers with the atomic and magnetic constitution and the dynamics of solids, the second one with these electrical houses that may be understood by way of the one-particle approximation, and the 3rd with the consequences because of interactions and correlations between electrons.
This quantity covers 4 significant issues. After a quick heritage of solid-state physics, the introductory half offers the category of condensed stages, describes the elemental beneficial properties of atoms as construction blocks of solids, and analyzes how atoms bind jointly to shape solids.
The moment half offers with structural features. The symmetries of crystalline solids and their outcomes are lined intimately.
Deviations from crystalline order both because of defects or in kind of quasicrystalline or noncrystalline buildings also are mentioned. The 3rd half is dedicated to the theoretical description and experimental statement of lattice vibrations. eventually, magnetism because of localized magnetic moments is taken care of either phenomenologically and quantum mechanically.
The textual content offers considerable fabric for upper-level undergraduate and graduate classes. The booklet additionally serves as a precious reference for researchers within the box of condensed topic physics.
