Title
A
modern
course
in the
quantum
theory
of
solids
Creator
Han, Fuxiang.
Contributors
World Scientific (Firm)
DescriptionAbstract
This
book
contains
advanced
subjects
in
solid
state
physics
with
emphasis
on the
theoretical
exposition
of
various
physical
phenomena
in
solids
using
quantum
theory
,
hence
entitled
"A
modern
course
in the
quantum
theory
of
solids
". The
use
of the
adjective
"
modern
" in the
title
is
to
reflect
the
fact
that
some
of the
new
developments
in
condensed
matter
physics
have been
included
in the
book
. The
new
developments
contained
in the
book
are
mainly
in
experimental
methods
(inelastic
neutron
scattering
and
photoemission
spectroscopy)
, in
magnetic
properties
of
solids
(the
itinerant
magnetism
, the
superexchange
, the
Hubbard
model
, and
giant
and
colossal
magnetoresistance)
, and in
optical
properties
of
solids
(Raman
scattering)
.
Besides
the
new
developments
, the
Green's
function
method
used
in
manybody
physics
and the
strongcoupling
theory
of
superconductivity
are also
expounded
in
great
detail
.
