Description

This comprehensive text covers the basic physics of the solid state starting at an elementary level suitable for undergraduates but then advancing, in stages, to a graduate and advanced graduate level. In addition to treating the fundamental elastic, electrical, thermal, magnetic, structural, electronic, transport, optical, mechanical and compositional properties, we also discuss topics like superfluidity and superconductivity along with special topics such as strongly correlated systems, high-temperature superconductors, the quantum Hall effects, and graphene. Particular emphasis is given to so-called first principles calculations utilizing modern density functional theory which for many systems now allow accurate calculations of the electronic, magnetic, and thermal properties.

About Author

J.B. Ketterson received his BS, MS, and PhD degrees from the University of Chicago, USA. He worked at the Argonne National laboratory from 1962 to 1974 at which time he joined the faculty of the Physics and Astronomy Department at Northwestern University, USA. Research interests have included electronic properties of metals (particularly Fermi surface measurements); superfluid 4He, normal and superfluid 3He, and 3He - 4He solutions; superconductivity, magnetism and magnetic resonance, nonlinear optics, and excitons.
