This new edition of this work offers an up-to-date survey of the concepts and methods in contemporary condensed matter physics, emphasizing topics that can be treated by quantum mechanical methods. The book features tutorial discussions of a number of current research topics including: renormalization group theory, integer and fractional quantum Hall effect, transport in mesoscopic systems and numerical methods in many-body theory. Also included are updated treatments of topics that have developed significantly within the past several years such as superconductivity, magnetic impurities in metals, methods for electronic structure calculations, magnetic ordering in insulators and metals, and linear reponse theory.
