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

by Peter E. BlĂ¶chl

**Publisher**: TU Clausthal 2013**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.
