@bul:* Bridges the gap between fundamental principles and active fields of reserch, including explanations of all the latest advances
* Provides an in-depth treatment of current research topics
* Examples are integral to the text and apply fundamental principles to current topics of research
* Both authors have many years of experience of teaching at a variety of levels--undergraduate, post-graduate, tutorial workshops and seminars
Although there are many books published in solid state physics, there is a wide gap between the active field of research and the concepts
traditionally taught in solid state courses. This book fills that gap. The style is tutorial, simple, and completely self-contained.
Solid State Physicsexplains to readers the newest advances in the area of condensed matter physics with rigorous, but lucid mathematics. Examples are an integral part of the text, and they are carefully designed to apply the fundamental principles illustrated in the text to currently active topics of research.
Graduate students, advanced graduates, and researchers in the fields of theoretical and experimental activity in condensed matter theory and solid state physics.
