Very Readable Account Aug 23, 2005
Its a nice little book on phonons and electrons,the chapters are well-laid out,the explanations are good,though some parts like the section on crystal momentum and the associated "normal"and "umklapp" process have been given rather perfunctory physical attributes.At any rate any one looking into transport phenomenon in solids and semiconductors should read it.Chapters 3&4 are the crucial ones of the book.And yes,it provides an excellent launching pad to delve into Ziman's "Electrons and Phonons",this book helped me understand much of Ziman's work as contained in his text and regarded as the one of the best ever on phonons and electrons.The work by Liang-Fu-Lou is certainly worth reading.
