This volume contains a discriminating selection of papers with commentaries by one of the most creative theoretical physicists of our century, Nobel Laureate Sir Nevill Mott. His pioneering contributions (1928 - 1993) include Fermi liquid theory, metal-insulator transition, the theory of noncrystalline materials, high-temperature superconductivity and many other discoveries.


The solution of the wave equation for the scattering of particles by a coulombian centre of force; the polarization of electrons by double scattering; the resistance and thermoelectric properties of the transition metals; energy levels in real and ideal crystals; atomic physics and the strength of metals; the theory of magnetism in transition metals; polarons in transition-metal oxides; conduction and switching in noncrystalline materials; the Kondo effect and the highly correlated gas; mechanisms for the oxidation of silicon and the formation of charged defects; metals, nonmetals and metal-nonmetal transitions - some recollections; polaron models of high-temperature superconductors.
