Condensed Matter Physics (07 Edition)by Akira Isihara
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
More than a graduate text and advanced research guide on condensed matter physics, this volume is useful to plasma physicists and polymer chemists, and their students. It emphasizes applications of statistical mechanics to a variety of systems in condensed matter physics rather than theoretical derivations of the principles of statistical mechanics and techniques.
Isihara addresses a dozen different subjects in separate chapters, each designed to be directly accessible and used independently of previous chapters. Topics include simple liquids, electron systems and correlations, two-dimensional electron systems, quasi one-dimensional systems, hopping and localization, magnetism, superconductivity, liquid helium, liquid crystals, and polymers. Extensive appendixes offer background on molecular distribution functions, which play important roles in the theoretical derivations.

Both an introductory research work and a graduate text on condensed matter physics, this volume is also accessible to plasma physicists and their students. It emphasizes applications to a variety of systems rather than theoretical derivations and techniques. Chapters are self-contained and can be read independently.
