Product description

Filling a gap in the literature for a brief course in solid state physics, this is a clear and concise introduction that not only describes all the basic phenomena and concepts, but also discusses such advanced issues as magnetism and superconductivity. This textbook assumes only basic mathematical knowledge on the part of the reader and includes more than 100 discussion questions and some 70 problems, with solutions as well as further supplementary material available free to lecturers from the Wiley-VCH website.

Author information

Philip Hofmann studied physics at the Free University, Berlin and did his PhD research at the Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max Planck Society, also in Berlin. He stayed at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, USA, as a Feodor Lynen Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. In 1998, he moved to the University of Aarhus, Denmark, where he is associated with the Synchrotron Radiation Source and the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO). His research is primarily focused on the electronic structure of solids and their surfaces.

Review quote

"The positive moments of the books are the discussions and problems presented in the end of each chapter of the textbook." (Zentralblatt MATH, 2011) "This textbook definitely has an interesting scope within an established field and it has been written with appealing didactic skills." ( Southwest IOP Science , July 2009) "The book is very well presented. The book's strength is undoubtedly the breadth of coverage." ( Reviews , May 2009)
