Advanced Solid State Theory
- Thomas Pruschke
- July 2014
DescriptionThis book introduces advanced concepts and topics of solid-state theory to graduate-level students interested in advanced topics of condensed matter physics. It is self-contained in the sense that it provides the theoretical tools to calculate properties of interacting quantum systems (elements of many-particle physics), which are then applied to a selection of subjects of interest in condensed matter physics: dielectric theory of the solid, transport theory and superconductivity. Basic knowledge in the concepts of condensed matter theory as well as solid background in quantum mechanics is assumed.
About EditorsThomas Pruschke studied physics at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany, where he received his PhD degree in 1989. He then spent from 1990 until 1991 as postdoc at the Tokyo Institute of Technology in Tokyo, Japan, and six months in 1992 as visiting scholar at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. After 10 years as research assistant in Regensburg and Augsburg, he was appointed as professor for computational physics at the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen. His research field is the numerical simulation of strongly interacting electrons in condensed matter physics, with particular emphasis on transport, magnetism and superconductivity. In addition to his faculty position in Göttingen, he is also Adjoint Professor at the Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, USA, and at the Tata Institute for Fundamental Research in Mumbai, India.
