**Quantum Theory of Condensed Matter**

by John Chalker

**Publisher**: Oxford University 2013**Number of pages**: 42

**Description**:

I aim to discuss a reasonably wide range of quantum-mechanical phenomena from condensed matter physics, with an emphasis mainly on physical ideas rather than mathematical formalism. The most important prerequisite is some understanding of second quantization for fermions and bosons.
