Description

Designed as an introduction to solid-state and condensed-matter physics, this textbook is ideal for one-semester graduate and advanced undergraduate courses in materials science. The new third edition includes a chapter on the properties of amorphous solids, and discusses recent progress in such areas as basic crystal structure, superconductivity, diffraction, defects, dislocations, specific heat, phonons, thermal and electrical conductivities, and the field of solid-state studies. Many textual changes have been made to clarify certain points and short sections have been added on low-dimensional semiconducting structures and on magnetic materials. Extra problems have been added and answers to all problems are provided. The presentation is direct and to-the-point, proceeding straight to the core topics in the field.

Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:

⭐Overall this is a concise presentation of solid state material science. If your new to the field or need a refresher this is a nice text, but buy a used copy because ~$100 is excessively overpriced. The author states that the text has kept the mathematics to a minimimum and he means it! If your looking for a rigourus mathematical presentation this is not the text. I also have to note that scientist from the UK are really good at delivering information clearly.

⭐I used this book to teach an advanced undergrad/intro graduate solid state course in materials science. The students really liked it and I enjoyed the homework problems, they really drill concepts into the students. Great text!

⭐When reading books of solid state physics, apart from the mathematics and quantum mechanics, the overall understanding is much influenced from solid knowledge of the fundamental concepts. This is the book you should read before embarking in deeper study of the physics of solid state. Indeed, this book is a gem; it clarifies all the basics, and is highly satisfactory in breadth and depth. It is also excellent for reviewing. THe book is very actual in the topics selection, concise, pretty self-contained and, above all, thin. It also has a very nice section on amorphous materials that is not commonly found in introductory solid state books. I hope you will enjoy it as much as i did!

⭐This book is short, easy to read, yet it gives the reader a simple but clear picture of the solid state. It was used as a reference book for the introductory solid state physics course which I took in my first year of graduate study at Harvard. I enjoyed the book a lot.

⭐Easy to grasp explanations and a fluid structure makes this text a great resource for undergraduate physics students. Personally, my solid state physics course this year was a nightmare but this book made the subject bearable (particularly defects which were exceptionally well explained), that is for those topics which it contained. It loses a star only because the scope of information contained in this text may not be adequate for all undergraduate solid state courses but it does provide a great introduction whilst still remaining technical enough to make you scratch your head. For a more comprehensive text, Kittel will do nicely, though I found it very difficult to read.If starting a solid state course, scrub up on your quantum mechanics – you’re going to need it!

⭐Obviously an older style text book, not the kind of thing you could imagine being printed these days. But this makes it feel quite nice and look good on a bookshelf.The physics covered is actually quite in depth and covers the subject from the very start to end (look at the contents to see). Unfortunately lots of the equations in the book were derived a different way in the book to what I had seen in lectures and this made it less useful than I would have liked. But this isn’t particularly a fault of the book so it doesn’t lose many stars.Could maybe do with being a bit more modern/up to date and a bit more approachable, otherwise a great book!

⭐again this book was needed for my course i took a chance and bought one without a picture, it was the correct book and in perfect condition
