Solid State Physics
by Adrianus J. Dekker
Publisher: Prentice-Hall 1957
Number of pages: 540
The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to the study of the physical properties of crystalline solids. My aim has been to write an introductory text suitable for senior undergraduate and beginning graduate courses on the solid state in physics, engineering, chemistry, and metallurgy.

The literature on vibrational thermodynamics of materials is reviewed. The emphasis is on metals and alloys, especially on the progress over the last decade in understanding differences in the vibrational entropy of different alloy phases.

This is an introduction to the basic concepts, meaning that the emphasis is on the single-particle aspects. The emphasis is on the explanation of concepts and basic ideas, and the justification of the use of simplified 'model Hamiltonians'.
