Quantum Theory of Conducting Matter, 2007 Newtonian Equations of Motion for a Bloch Electron

Langue : Anglais

Auteurs :

Couverture de l’ouvrage Quantum Theory of Conducting Matter

In a complex field, this work is a first. The authors make an important connection between the conduction electrons and the Fermi surface in an elementary manner in the text. No currently available text explains this connection. They do this by deriving Newtonian equations of motion for the Bloch electron and diagonalizing the inverse mass (symmetric) tensor. The authors plan to follow up this book with a second, more advanced book on superconductivity and the Quantum Hall Effect.

I. Preliminaries Chapter 1 through 5 - Introduction, Theoretical Background; Lattice vibrations, heat capacity; Free electron model, heat capacity; Electrical conduction and the Hall effect; Magnetic susceptibility II. Bloch Electron Dynamics Chapter 6 through 10 - Introduction; The Bloch theorem; The Fermi liquid model; The Fermi surface and de Haas-van Alphen oscillations; Newtonian equations of motion III. Applications Chapter 11 through 18 - Introduction; Cyclotron resonance; Dynamic conductivity, infrared faraday effect; Thermoelectric power; The doping dependence of the susceptibility in cuprates; Electron-phonon interation; Superconductivity; Quantum Hall effect

Shigeji Fujita is Professor of Physics at State University of New York at Buffalo and has published 3 books with the Springer family since 1996.  His areas of expertise include statistical physics, solid and liquid state physics, superconductivity and Quantum Hall Effect theory. 

Kei Ito is also a Professor of Physics at the State University of New York at Buffalo, while on leave from the National Center for University Entrance Examinations in Tokyo, Japan.

Current solid-state physics books say very little about the dynamics of Bloch electrons, and this book will help users to learn and master the issue

The book brings together various modern concepts at the forefront of condensed matter physics including the connection between conduction electrons and the Fermi surface

The book will be followed up by a more advanced book on superconductivity and the Quantum Hall Effect
