Although the topic is a well established sub-set of solid state physics, Quantum Theory of Solids develops the concepts of quantum theory for the solid state in a single, one-stop reference. Readers with previous courses in quantum mechanics and solid state physics can develop further, learning more on the three most significant topics in solid state physics: semiconductors, magnetism and superconductivity. The author explains quantum mechanics techniques not usually found in introductory courses, such as the variational method and perturbation theory. The text is suitable for a stand-alone final year course, covering the necessary physics from a basic to advanced level.
