Solid State Physics

£16.99

Product description

This book is designed to serve as a first text for a course on the physics of solids. For an undergraduate majoring in physics it should be appropriate during the final two years. However, it is also designed to fit the needs of those with other degree majors, such as chemistry, materials science and electrical engineering, who may not encounter the requirement until they begin postgraduate study.
The author's aim is a reasonably rigorous, but not obscure, comprehensive account of the subject. The emphasis is on crystalline solids, going from the crystal lattice ideas of reciprocal space and Brillouin zones, and these ideas are developed for lattice vibrations, for the theory of metals and for semiconductors. The theme of lattice periodicity runs through much the book, but other sections deal with major aspects of solid state physics controlled by other phenomena, such as superconductivity, dielectric and magnetic properties and magnetic resonance. The book is in SI units throughout, and includes more than 100 problems of varied length and difficulty.
