Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text continues to fill the need to communicate the present view of a solid as a system of interacting particles which, under suitable circumstances, behaves like a collection of nearly independent elementary excitations. In addition to introducing basic concepts, the author frequently refers to experimental data. Usually, both the basic theory and the applications discussed deal with the behavior of ‘simple metals, rather than the ‘complicated metals, such as the transition metals and the rare earths. Problems have been included for most of the chapters.

Book News Annotation:

Continues the series of inexpensive paper reprints of classic graduate-level texts and monographs with a collection of 1961 lectures by Pines (physics, U. of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign. Assumes at least a year's prior course in quantum mechanics, but no previous knowledge of field theory. The earlier editions appeared in 1966 and 1989. No index.

Synopsis:

A classic treatment of solids as systems of interacting particles.
