Description:
The course aims at firstyeat graduate students
who have not studied Solid State Physics or have only on an elementary level.
Essential concepts of solid state physics
will be introduced with a select number
of examples, such as semiconductors, localization,
superconductivity, and quantum magnetism. This
course prepares students for frontier research
in condensed matter physics. Old theories of metals, crystal structures,
band structures, semiclassical transport, lattice dynamics and
advanced topics will be covered. Modern experimental techniques
will also be introduced.
Prerequisites:
Quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics
Reading List:
 Solid State Physics, N.W. Ashcroft and N.D. Mermin
