Synopsis

Fundamentals of the Physics of Solids Volume 3 - Normal, Broken-Symmetry, and Correlated Systems by Jeno Solyom

This book is the third of a three-volume series written by the same author. It aims to deliver a comprehensive and self-contained account of the fundamentals of the physics of solids. In the presentation of the properties and experimentally observed phenomena together with the basic concepts and theoretical methods, it goes far beyond most classic texts. The essential features of various experimental techniques are also explained. This volume is devoted mostly to the discussion of the effects of electron-electron interaction beyond the one-electron approximation. The density-functional theory is introduced to account for correlation effects. The response to external perturbations is discussed in the framework of linear response theory. Landau's Fermi-liquid theory is followed by the theory of Luttinger liquids. The subsequent chapters are devoted to electronic phases with broken symmetry: to itinerant magnetism, to spin- and charge-density waves and their realizations in quasi-one-dimensional materials, as well as to the microscopic theory of superconductivity. An overview is given of the physics of strongly correlated systems. The last chapter covers selected problems in the physics of disordered systems.

Reviews

From the reviews: This first volume focuses on crystal structure and lattice dynamics. provides a substantial amount of theoretical material at an advanced graduate level. There is more material here than can be covered in a single semester, and this book is more detailed than the well-known books . This volume would be most attractive for a one- or even two-semester advanced graduate course, and is a desirable reference work anywhere condensed matter/solid state/materials research is conducted. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students through professionals. (M. C. Ogilvie, CHOICE, Vol. 45 (11), 2008) This is the first volume of three textbooks used by author to teach a two or three semester solid-state physics course at Eotvos University in Budapest. We found the text very self-explanatory, very student friendly, and highly useful. In conclusion, this first volume is an excellent textbook that we recommend for a solid-state physics course . Many students and solid-state research fellows will find it easy to learn from this book even without help from a professor. (Fernande Grandjean and Gary J. Long, Belgian Physical Society Magazine, Issue (1), March, 2009) From the reviews:
