This chapter begins with a discussion of the free electron model. It then discusses the effect of the periodic lattice, Brillouin zones, band structure and the Fermi surface, Coulomb interaction, the tight-binding method, the cellular method, plane-wave methods, dynamic properties of electrons, Fermi-Dirac statistics, experimental study of the Fermi surface, and the electron structure of the elements.
