Book Description

Foundations of Solid State Physics: Dimensionality and Symmetry (PDF) is an essential guide to solid state physics through the lens of dimensionality and symmetry.

Foundations of Solid State Physics introduces the essential topics of solid-state physics as taught globally with a focus on understanding the properties of solids from the viewpoint of dimensionality and symmetry. Written in a conversational manner and designed to be accessible; the ebook contains a minimal amount of mathematics. The authors (noted experts on the topic) offer an insightful review of the basic topics; such as the static and dynamic lattice in real space; electrons in solids; the reciprocal lattice; and transport in materials and devices.

The PDF ebook also includes more advanced topics: the quasi-particle concept (solitons; polarons; phonons; excitons); light-matter interactions; strong electron-electron correlation; and spin systems. The authors’ approach makes it possible to gain a clear understanding of conducting polymers; nanowires; carbon nanotubes; perovskites; and organic crystals in terms of their expressed dimension; topological connectedness; two-dimensional chalcogenides; and quantum confinement. This important guide:

-Contains end-of-chapter problems with different degrees of difficulty to enhance understanding

-Treats all classical topics of solid state physics courses – plus the physics of low-dimensional systems

-Offers an understanding of a variety of technology-relevant solid-state materials in terms of their dimension; topology and quantum confinement

Written for college students in material sciences; physics; and chemistry; lecturers; and other academics; Foundations of Solid State Physics explores the basic and advanced topics of solid state physics with a unique focus on dimensionality and symmetry.
