A latest, unified remedy of condensed topic physics This new paintings offers for the 1st time in many years a sweeping overview of the complete box of condensed subject physics. It consolidates new and vintage subject matters from disparate resources, educating "not simply concerning the potent lots of electrons in semiconductor crystals and band thought, but in addition approximately quasicrystals, dynamics of part separation, why rubber is extra floppy than metal, electron interference in nanometer-sized channels, and the quantum corridor effect." Six significant parts are covered---atomic constitution, digital constitution, mechanical homes, electron delivery, optical homes, and magnetism. yet instead of defining the sector by way of specific fabrics, the writer specializes in the best way condensed topic physicists method actual difficulties, combining phenomenology and microscopic arguments with details from experiments. For graduate scholars and pros, researchers and engineers, utilized mathematicians and fabrics scientists, Condensed topic Physics presents: * a thrilling choice of new subject matters from the previous twenty years. * an intensive remedy of vintage issues, together with band idea, shipping idea, and semiconductor physics. * Over three hundred figures, incorporating many photographs from experiments. * widespread comparability of concept and scan, either after they agree and while difficulties are nonetheless unsolved. * greater than 50 tables of knowledge and a close index. * abundant end-of-chapter difficulties, together with computational routines. * Over one thousand references, either fresh and traditionally major.
