The Geometry of Algebraic Fermi Curves
This text outlines a mathematical model for electronic motion at low temperature in a finite, pure sample of a d-dimensional crystal. The authors present research using the machinery of algebraic geometry and topological methods to determine the independent electron approximation. Intended for use by researchers and graduate students in algebraic geometry, analysis and mathematical physics, the book includes chapters on one dimensional algebraic bloch varieties and the potential zero.
