Quantum Theory of Condensed Matter

Small book cover: Quantum Theory of Condensed Matter

Quantum Theory of Condensed Matter
by

Publisher: Oxford University
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.

DFT is not just another way of solving the Schroedinger equation. Density functional theory is a completely different, rigorous way of approaching any interacting problem, by mapping it exactly to a much easier-to-solve non-interacting problem.
