**Introduction to Solid State Physics**

by

**Frank Göhmann**-

**arXiv.org**,

**2021**

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'.
