Quantum Theory of Solids by Sir R. E. Peierls

Book Description

This book develops the subject from the basic principles of quantum mechanics. The emphasis is on a single statement of the ideas underlying the various approximations that have to be used and care is taken to separate sound arguments from conjecture. This book is written for the student of theoretical physics who wants to work in the field of solids and for the experimenter with a knowledge of quantum theory who is not content to take other people's arguments for granted. The treatment covers the electron theory of metals as well as the dynamics of crystals, including the author's work on the thermal conductivity of crystals which has been previously published in English.

Books By Author Sir R. E. Peierls

Quantum Theory of Solids by Sir R. E. Peierls Quantum Theory of Solids, Hardback (August 1996)

This is a classic text of its time in condensed matter physics.

More Surprises in Theoretical Physics by Sir R. E. Peierls More Surprises in Theoretical Physics, Paperback (August 1991)

Draws from many diverse fields of theoretical physics to present problems in which the answer differs from what our intuition had led us to expect. This book is suitable for both graduate students and their teachers.

Surprises in Theoretical Physics by Sir R. E. Peierls Surprises in Theoretical Physics, Paperback (November 1979)

Problems in theoretical physics often lead to paradoxical answers; yet closer reasoning and a more complete analysis invariably lead to the resolution of the paradox. This work is based on the author's lectures at the University of Washington in the spring of 1977 and at the Institut de Physique Nucleaire, University de Paris-Sud, Orsay.
