Aimed at graduate students and researchers, this book covers the key aspects of the modern quantum theory of solids, including up-to-date ideas such as quantum fluctuations and strong electron correlations. It presents in the main concepts of the modern quantum theory of solids, as well as a general description of the essential theoretical methods required when working with these systems. Diverse topics such as general theory of phase transitions, harmonic and anharmonic lattices, Bose condensation and superfluidity, modern aspects of magnetism including resonating valence bonds, electrons in metals, and strong electron correlations are treated using unifying concepts of order and elementary excitations. The main theoretical tools used to treat these problems are introduced and explained in a simple way, and their applications are demonstrated through concrete examples.

Describing all aspects of the physics of transition metal compounds, this book provides a comprehensive overview of this unique and diverse class of solids. Beginning with the basic concepts of the physics of strongly correlated electron systems, the structure of transition metal ions, and the behaviours of transition metal ions in crystals, it goes on to cover more advanced topics such as metal-insulator transitions, orbital ordering, and novel phenomena such as multiferroics, systems with oxygen holes, and high-Tc superconductivity. Each chapter concludes with a summary of key facts and concepts, presenting all the most important information in a consistent and concise manner. Set within a modern conceptual framework, and providing a complete treatment of the fundamental factors and mechanisms that determine the properties of transition metal compounds, this is an invaluable resource for graduate students, researchers and industrial practitioners in solid state physics and chemistry, materials science, and inorganic chemistry.

"a very detailed book on multiferroics that will be useful for PhD students and researchers interested in this emerging field of materials science" —Dr. Wilfrid Prellier, Research Director, CNRS, Caen, France Multiferroics has emerged as one of the hottest topics in solid state physics in this millennium. The coexistence of multiple ferroic/antiferroic properties makes them useful both for fundamental studies and practical applications such as revolutionary new memory technologies and next-generation spintronics devices. This book provides an historical introduction to the field, followed by a summary of recent progress in single-phase multiferroics (type-I and type-II), multiferroic composites (bulk and nano composites), and emerging areas such as domain walls and vortices. Each chapter addresses potential technological implications. There is also a section dedicated to theoretical approaches, both phenomenological and first-principles calculations.

Quantum Theory of Solids presents a concisely-structured tour of the theory relating to chemical bonding and its application to the three most significant topics in solid state physics: semiconductors, magnetism, and superconductivity--topics that have seen major advances in recent years. This is a unique treatment that develops the concepts of quantum theory for the solid state from the basics through to an advanced level, encompassing additional quantum mechanics techniques, such as the variational method and perturbation theory. Written at the senior undergraduate/masters level, it provides an exceptional grounding in the subject.

Die Festkörperphysik ist eines der großen Hauptgebiete der heutigen Physik. Der Festkörper stellt mit seinen verwickelten elektrischen, optischen, thermischen und magnetischen Eigenschaften ein äußerst reizvolles Objekt moderner Grundlagen forschung dar. In der Tat gelingt es hier, die oft sehr komplizierten Erscheinungen aufzuklären und bis in die Details hinein zu verfolgen. Das damit verbundene tief greifende Verständnis der physikalischen Vorgänge im Festkörper führt darüber hinaus zu äußerst wichtigen Anwendungen, z. B. in der Nachrichten-und Computer technik. Der Studierende, der sich in dieses Gebiet einarbeiten will, stellt allerdings sehr rasch fest, daß hier in großem Umfang Begriffsbildungen und Methoden der Quantenfeld theorie verwendet werden. Diese Methoden gestatten es nicht nur, die physikalischen Vorgänge im Festkörper in eleganter Weise zu beschreiben, sondern sie haben auch zu grundsätzlich neuen Erkenntnissen geführt. Als hervorragendes Beispiel sei hier nur die Erklärung der Supraleitung erwähnt. Andererseits wird dem Studierenden in einer Kursvorlesung, etwa der Quanten mechanik, kaum die Möglichkeit geboten, dieses wichtige Gebiet kennenzulernen. Aufgabe dieses Buches soll es sein, diese Lücke zu schließen, indem es den Leser in einfacher Weise an die Begriffsbildungen und Methoden der Quantenfeldtheorie her anführt. So sollte ein Leser, der mit den mathematischen Kenntnissen der ersten drei Semes·ter und den Grundbegriffen der Quantenmechanik vertraut ist, ohne weiteres in der Lage sein, sich mit Hilfe dieses Buches in die Quantenfeldtheorie des Fest körpers einzuarbeiten.

Quantum Theory of the Solid State, Part B describes the concepts and methods of the central problems of the quantum theory of solids. This book discusses the developed machinery applied to impurities, disordered systems, effects of external fields, transport phenomena, and superconductivity. The representation theory, low field diamagnetic susceptibility, electron-phonon interaction, and Landau theory of fermi liquids are also deliberated. This text concludes with an introduction to many-body theory and some applications. This publication is a suitable textbook for students who have completed a one-year course in quantum mechanics and have some familiarity with the experimental facts of solid state physics.
