The object of this textbook is to present the central principles of the quantum theory of solids to theoretical physicists generally and to those experimental solid state physicists who have had a one year course in quantum mechanics. Emphasis has been placed on unifying principles. The first part of the book treats phonon, magnon and electron fields and their interactions, culminating in the theory of superconductivity. The second part treats fermi surfaces and electron wave functions in metals, alloys, semiconductors and insulators with considerable attention to the theory of the important types of experiments which bear on our understanding. The third part deals with correlation functions and their application to time- dependent effects in solids, with a brief introduction to Green's functions.

Quantum Theory of Solids is a modern presentation of theoretical solid state physics it builds directly on the same author?s Introduction to Solid State Physics and is planned as a one year graduate course for experimental and theoretical physicists it is well-suited for self study because the text contains 110 problems. The first part of the book treats phonon, electron, and magnon fields, culminating in the BCS theory of superconductivity. The second part considers Fermi surfaces and electron wave functions, and develops the group theoretical description of Brillouin zones. The third part applies correlation functions to time-dependent effects in solids, with an introduction to Green?s functions.About the Author:
About the author...Charles Kittel taught solid state physics at the University of California Berkeley from 1951 to 1978. Earlier he had been a member of the solid state physics group at Bell Laboratories. His undergraduate work in physics was a M.I.T. and at the Cavendish Laboratory of Cambridge University. His PhD was from the University of Wisconsin. He has been awarded the Oliver Buckley Prize for Solid State Physics and the Oersted Medal of the American Association of Physics Teachers He is a member of the National Academy of Science and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is the author of a widely used introductory book on solid state physics.
