Item description for Introduction to Phonons and Electrons by Liang-Fu Lou...

This book focuses on phonons and electrons, which the student needs to learn first in solid state physics. The required quantum theory and statistical physics are derived from scratch. Systematic in structure and tutorial in style, the treatment is filled with detailed mathematical steps and physical interpretations. This approach ensures a self-sufficient content for easier teaching and learning. The objective is to introduce the concepts of phonons and electrons in a more rigorous and yet clearer way, so that the student does not need to relearn them in more advanced courses. Examples are the transition from lattice vibrations to phonons and from free electrons to energy bands.

The book can be used as the beginning module of a one-year introductory course on solid state physics, and the instructor will have a chance to choose additional topics. Alternatively, it can be taught as a stand-alone text for building the most-needed foundation in just one semester.

Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to Phonons and Electrons?

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.
