Atomic and Electronic Structure of Solids by Efthimios Kaxiras

By Efthimios Kaxiras

this article is a contemporary remedy of the idea of solids. The middle of the e-book bargains with the physics of electron and phonon states in crystals and the way they verify the constitution and homes of the cast. The dialogue makes use of density sensible thought as a place to begin and covers digital and optical phenomena, magnetism and superconductivity. there's additionally an intensive therapy of defects in solids, together with aspect defects, dislocations, surfaces and interfaces. a couple of sleek subject matters the place the idea of solids applies also are explored, together with quasicrystals, amorphous solids, polymers, steel and semiconductor clusters, carbon nanotubes and organic macromolecules. a variety of examples are awarded intimately and every bankruptcy is followed via difficulties and steered extra readings. an intensive set of appendices offers the entire invaluable history for deriving all of the effects mentioned broadly speaking physique of the text.
