Publisher: TU Clausthal
Number of pages: 302

Description:
This book provides an introduction into the quantum mechanics of the interacting electron gas. It aims at students at the graduate level, that already have a good understanding on one-particle quantum mechanics. My aim is to include all proofs in a comprehensive and hopefully water-tight manner.
