Download Fundamentals of the Physics of Solids: Structure and by Solyom J. PDF

By Solyom J.

This publication is the 1st of a three-volume sequence written via an identical writer that goals to bring a complete and self-contained account of the substantial box of solid-state physics. It is going a ways past such a lot vintage texts within the presentation of the homes of solids and experimentally saw phenomena, in addition to the elemental recommendations and theoretical tools used to appreciate them and the fundamental good points of assorted experimental techniques.

the 1st quantity bargains with the atomic and magnetic constitution and the dynamics of solids, the second one with these electrical houses that may be understood when it comes to the one-particle approximation, and the 3rd with the results as a result of interactions and correlations between electrons.

This quantity covers 4 significant subject matters. After a short heritage of solid-state physics, the introductory half offers the class of condensed stages, describes the elemental good points of atoms as construction blocks of solids, and analyzes how atoms bind jointly to shape solids.

The moment half bargains with structural points. The symmetries of crystalline solids and their results are lined in detail.

Deviations from crystalline order both because of defects or in type of quasicrystalline or noncrystalline buildings also are mentioned. The 3rd half is dedicated to the theoretical description and experimental commentary of lattice vibrations. ultimately, magnetism because of localized magnetic moments is taken care of either phenomenologically and quantum mechanically.

The textual content offers plentiful fabric for upper-level undergraduate and graduate classes. The ebook additionally serves as a worthy reference for researchers within the box of condensed topic physics.

Download Fragile Objects: Soft Matter, Hard Science, and the Thrill by Pierre-Gilles de Gennes PDF

By Pierre-Gilles de Gennes

Over the earlier few a long time we've discovered very much concerning the habit of such fabrics as liquid crystals, emulsions and colloids, polymers, and complicated molecules. those fabrics, referred to as "soft subject" ("matière fragile" in French), have neither the inflexible constitution and crystalline symmetry of a superb nor the uniformity and sickness of a fluid or a fuel. they've got strange and engaging houses: a few swap their viscosity at our beck and phone; others shape layers of two-dimensional beverages; a few are polarized, their molecules all orientated within the related path and handing over unison at our command; others make up the foams, bubbles, waxes, gums, and lots of different goods we take with no consideration each day. De Gennes, one of many world's top specialists on those unusual sorts of subject, the following addresses themes starting from soft-matter physics - the formation of rubber, the character and makes use of of gum arabic, the wetting and de-wetting of surfaces, and the mysterious houses of bubbles and foams - to the actions of technology: the function of person or crew paintings, the relation of discovery to correction, and the interaction of sense of right and wrong and information. within the top culture of technology writing, this e-book teaches us approximately either our global and ourselves.

Download Practical physics by Squires, Gordon Leslie PDF

By Squires, Gordon Leslie

This e-book units out to illustrate the aim and important method that are supposed to be made to all experimental paintings in physics. It doesn't describe a scientific path in functional paintings. the current variation keeps the elemental outlook of prior variants, yet ameliorations were made based on vital alterations in computational and experimental equipment long ago decade. The textual content is in 3 elements. the 1st offers with the statistical therapy of knowledge, and the following the textual content has been generally revised to take account of the now common use of digital calculators. the second one bargains with experimental equipment, giving information of specific experiments that exhibit the paintings and craft of the experimenter. The 3rd half offers with such crucial issues as protecting effective documents, accuracy in mathematics, and writing reliable, medical English

Download Perspectives of Polarons by Gennady N Chuev, V Lakhno PDF

By Gennady N Chuev, V Lakhno

The ebook offers the advance of the polaron conception and its program in numerous fields of physics. these days tools of the polaron thought are primary in such sciences as chemistry, solid-state and nuclear physics, and so forth. The monograph contains chosen articles, in accordance with the talks, given on the Workshops that have been held in Pushchino in 1993 and 1994. those articles lined diversified features of polaron physics and quantum box. They concerned either the elemental study resembling bipolarons and the polaron functions to check the self-trapped electron country in numerous drinks. we are hoping our publication should be of curiosity to a extensive diversity of readers, which are in a position to feel the buzz of the articles.

Download The theory of superconductivity in the high-Tc cuprates by P. W. Anderson PDF

By P. W. Anderson

This e-book is P. W. Anderson's long-awaited complete presentation of his thought of high-T"c" superconductivity within the cuprates. He learned that this outstanding new phenomenon wanted for its rationalization not only a brand new mechanism or "gimmick" yet an intensive transforming of the digital thought of metals, in particular these of low size. the numerous essentially new rules which are first absolutely provided right here would require a rewriting of the textbooks of many-body conception, that may take many years. The ebook accommodates complete discussions of the experimental state of affairs in those complicated fabrics, either the traditional and the superconducting states. the newest advances are contained in a range of re-and pre-prints of contemporary paintings by way of Anderson and collaborators.

The primary perception inside the e-book is that the stipulations for validity of the renormalized quasiparticle conception of metals ("Fermi Liquid Theory") are even more restrictive than have been concept, and aren't happy within the CuO"2" planes of high-T"c" fabrics (among, most likely, many different examples). This calls for a brand new kingdom of subject to be invented, new shipping theories, and new mechanisms for superconductivity. This publication will supersede all theoretical discussions of superconductivity which are now to be had in ebook form.
