Introduction to Solid-State Theory is a textbook for graduate students of physics and materials science. It also provides the theoretical background needed by physicists doing research in pure solid-state physics and its applications to electrical engineering. The fundamentals of solid-state theory are based on a description by delocalized and localized states and - within the concept of delocalized states - by elementary excitations. The development of solid-state theory within the last ten years has shown that by a systematic introduction of these concepts, large parts of the theory can be described in a unified way. At the same time, this form of description gives a qpictorialq formulation of many elementary processes in solids, which facilitates their understanding.Introduction to Solid-State Theory is a textbook for graduate students of physics and materials science.
