Basic Aspects of the Quantum Theory of Solids: Order and by Daniel I. Khomskii

By Daniel I. Khomskii

geared toward graduate scholars and researchers, this e-book covers the major points of the trendy quantum conception of solids, together with updated principles resembling quantum fluctuations and powerful electron correlations. It provides normally options of the trendy quantum idea of solids, in addition to a common description of the basic theoretical equipment required while operating with those structures. various issues akin to common concept of part transitions, harmonic and anharmonic lattices, Bose condensation and superfluidity, sleek points of magnetism together with resonating valence bonds, electrons in metals, and robust electron correlations are taken care of utilizing unifying techniques of order and simple excitations. the most theoretical instruments used to regard those difficulties are brought and defined in an easy means, and their functions are confirmed via concrete examples.
