Introduction to Solid State Physics
by Frank Göhmann
Publisher: arXiv.org 2021
Number of pages: 116
This is an introduction to the basic concepts, meaning that the emphasis is, in the first instance, on the single-particle aspects. The emphasis is on the explanation of concepts and basic ideas, not always quantitative, and the justification of the use of simplified 'model Hamiltonians'.
