Advanced Topics of Theoretical Physics I: The electronic structure of matter

Publisher: TU Clausthal 2013
Number of pages: 302
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.

An introduction to molecular electronic structural theory, concentrating on the description of ground state electronic structures - the principles of chemical bonding in molecules. Familiarity with differential and integral calculus is required.
Contents: Electron configuration; Tight binding; Nearly free electron model; Hartree-Fock method; Modern valence bond; Generalized valence bond; Moller-Plesset perturbation theory; Configuration interaction; Coupled cluster; etc.
