Synopsis

The object of this textbook is to present the central principles of the quantum theory of solids to theoretical physicists generally and to those experimental solid state physicists who have had a one year course in quantum mechanics. Emphasis has been placed on unifying principles. The first part of the book treats phonon, magnon and electron fields and their interactions, culminating in the theory of superconductivity. The second part treats fermi surfaces and electron wave functions in metals, alloys, semiconductors and insulators with considerable attention to the theory of the important types of experiments which bear on our understanding. The third part deals with correlation functions and their application to time- dependent effects in solids, with a brief introduction to Green's functions.
