The Physics of Solids

J. B. Ketterson


This text covers the basic physics of the solid state starting at an elementary level and advancing, in stages. In addition to treating the fundamental elastic, electrical, thermal, magnetic, structural, electronic, transport, optical, mechanical, and compositional properties, the text also discusses topics like superfluidity and superconductivity, along with special topics such as strongly correlated systems, high temperature superconductors, the quantum Hall effects, and graphene. Particular emphasis is given to so-called first principles calculations utilizing modern density functional theo ... More

Keywords: solid state, superfluidity, superconductivity, high temperature superconductor, quantum Hall effect, graphene, modern density functional theory
