Description

Assuming an elementary knowledge of quantum and statistical physics, this book provides a comprehensive guide to principal physical properties of condensed matter, as well as the underlying theory necessary for a proper understanding of their origins. The subject matter covers the principal features of condensed matter physics, but with particular accent on the properties of metal alloys. Relevance to technical applications is recognized.show more

Review quote

[the author's objectives} have been beautifully fulfilled in an eminently readable fashion. Several good points make the book better than average. There is a splendid introduction that explains the subject matter of solid state physics and that impresses on the reader the rewards of studying this subject.show more
