"In summary, the main strength of the book is that it conveys the enormous breadth of modern condensed matter physics and gives a basic, often conceptual account of these diverse topics." (Physics Today, June 2001)
"...there is clearly much here that lecturers and readers at the graduate level will find valuable." (Contemporary Physics, Vol 41/5, 2000)
"I can thoroughly recommend it to students, graduates and teachers. I would even say that everyone who is interested more deeply in the exciting world of matter should have this book on their library shelf." (European Journal of Physics, Vol 21, 2000)
"...responds to the need in both the academic and research communities for a modern introductory treatment of this essential subject." (Zeitschrift Fur Kristollographie, Vol. 218, No. 7, 2003)
An Instructor's Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available from the Wiley editorial department.
This new work presents for the first time in decades a sweeping review of the whole field of condensed matter physics. It consolidates new and classic topics from disparate sources, teaching "not only about the effective masses of electrons in semiconductor crystals and band theory, but also about quasicrystals, dynamics of phase separation, why rubber is more floppy than steel, electron interference in nanometer-sized channels, and the quantum Hall effect."
Six major subjects are coveredatomic structure, electronic structure, mechanical properties, electron transport, optical properties, and magnetism. But rather than defining the field in terms of particular materials, the author focuses on the way condensed matter physicists approach physical problems, combining phenomenology and microscopic arguments with information from experiments. For graduate students and professionals, researchers and engineers, applied mathematicians and materials scientists, Condensed Matter Physics provides:
