This introduction to solid-state physics emphasizes both experimental and theoretical aspects of materials science. Three important areas of modern research are treated in particular detail: magnetism, superconductivity, and semiconductor physics. Experimental aspects with examples taken from research areas of current interest are presented in the form of separate panels. This novel format, highly praised by readers of earlier editions, should help to relate the theoretical concepts described in the text to important practical applications. Students will benefit significantly from working through the problems related to each chapter. In many cases these lead into areas outside the scope of the main text and are designed to stimulate further study.

"Quantum Physics of the Solid State: an Introduction" Draft foreword: 26/09/03 If only this book had been available when I was starting out in science! It would have saved me countless hours of struggle in trying to apply the general ideas of the standard solid-state text-books to solve real problems. The fact is that most of the texts stop at the point where the real difficulties begin. The great merit of this book is that it describes in an honest and detailed way what one really has to do in order to understand the multifarious properties of solids in terms of the fundamental physical theory of quantum mechanics. University students of the physical sciences are taught about the fundamental the ories, and know that quantum mechanics, together with relativity, is our basis for understanding the physical world. But the practical difficulties of using quantum mechanics to do anything useful are usually not very well explained. The truth is that the application of quantum theory to achieve our present detailed understand ing of solids has required the development of a large array of mathematical tech niques. This is closely analogous to the challenge faced long ago by theoretical astronomers in trying to apply Newton's equations of motion to the heavens -they too had to develop a battery of theoretical and computational techniques to do cal culations that could be compared with observation.

While the standard solid state topics are covered, the basic ones often have more detailed derivations than is customary (with an empasis on crystalline solids). Several recent topics are introduced, as are some subjects normally included only in condensed matter physics. Lattice vibrations, electrons, interactions, and spin effects (mostly in magnetism) are discussed the most comprehensively. Many problems are included whose level is from "fill in the steps" to long and challenging, and the text is equipped with references and several comments about experiments with figures and tables.

Updated to reflect recent work in the field, this book emphasizes crystalline solids, going from the crystal lattice to the ideas of reciprocal space and Brillouin zones, and develops these ideas for lattice vibrations, for the theory of metals, and for semiconductors. The theme of lattice periodicity and its varied consequences runs through eighty percent of the book. Other sections deal with major aspects of solid state physics controlled by other phenomena: superconductivity, dielectric and magnetic properties, and magnetic resonance.

"Solid-State Theory - An Introduction" is a textbook for graduate students of physics and material sciences. Whilst covering the traditional topics of older textbooks, it also takes up new developments in theoretical concepts and materials that are connected with such breakthroughs as the quantum-Hall effects, the high-Tc superconductors, and the low-dimensional systems realized in solids. Thus besides providing the fundamental concepts to describe the physics of the electrons and ions comprising the solid, including their interactions, the book casts a bridge to the experimental facts and gives the reader an excellent insight into current research fields. A compilation of problems makes the book especially valuable to both students and teachers.

Providing an alternative to very elementary and very advanced resources in the area, Solid State Physics: An Introduction to Theory presents an intermediate quantum approach to the properties of solids. Through this lens, the text explores different properties such as lattice, electronic, elastic, thermal, dielectric, magnetic, semiconducting, superconducting and optical and transport properties in addition to the structure of crystalline solids. The work presents the general theory for most of the properties of crystalline solids and the results for one-, two- and three-dimensional solids are derived as particular cases. The book includes a brief description of emerging topics such as quantum Hall effect and high superconductivity; a chapter on nanomaterials has been included to familiarize the students with this new field. Building from the fundamental principles and requiring only a minimal mathematical background, Solid State: An Introduction to Theory Physics includes illustrative images and solved problems in all chapters, to support student understanding. Provides an introduction to recent topics such as quantum Hall effect, high-superconductivity and nanomaterials Utilizes the Dirac' notation to highlight the physics contained in the mathematics in an appropriate and succinct manner Includes many figures and solved problems throughout all chapters, to provide a deeper understanding for students Offers topics of particular interest to engineering students, such as elasticity in solids, dislocations, polymers, point defects and nanomaterials
