Understanding Solid State Physics : Problems and Solutions (Hardcover) (Jacques Cazaux)
about this item
The goal of solid state physics is to find the correlation between the microscopic composition of solids and their macroscopic (electrical, optical, thermal) properties. There are many good books that provide clear explanations and have made solid state physics look easier. However, clear explanations do not necessarily involve complete understanding, and the best test for the reader is to try an alternative point of view: solve exercises or problems.
The aim of this textbook is to teach solid state physics by challenging the readers through exercises and their worked solutions. The magnitude of the numerical applications will provide learners the opportunity to make useful errors and to learn by drawing figures and graphs. Simple questions that are free of mathematical considerations are given at the end of each chapter to be solved by common sense and will permit another view of the subject.
