Item description for Computational Methods in Solid State Physics by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nemoshkalenko & V. N. Antonov...

The combination of theoretical physics methods, numerical mathematics and computers has given rise to a new field of physics known as "computational physics." The purpose of this monograph is to present the various methods of computational physics, in particular the methods of band theory. The first chapter of the book provides an introduction to the field and presents the theoretical foundations of band theory. In the second and third chapters the authors describe both traditional and more modern methods of band theory and include practical recommendations for their use. Methods which are discussed include APW (augmented plane wave), Green's function method, LMTO (linear method of MT- orbitals), LKKR (linear Korringer, Kohn and Rostocker method), LAPW (linear augmented plane wave), ASW (augmented spherical waves), and LASO (linear method of augmented Slater orbitals). Great attention is paid to the practical aspects of these theories and the book is structured in such a way as to enable the reader to use any method in practice without reference to other sources.

Reviews - What do customers think about Computational Methods in Solid State Physics?

For grad student theorists  Jun 19, 2004
Much of theoretical solid state physics involves heavy computational tasks. Partly because the easy, elegant, back of the envelope calculations have mostly been done. Low hanging fruit. What remains in terms of finding quantitative predictions of properties requires intensive computation.

As Nemoshkalenko points out, this is made more difficult by the very fact that we are dealing to huge multiparticle systems. Unlike, say, a treatment of a system with a few particles. So over the decades, many levels of approximate treatment have arisen, and the author describes them here. For example, modelling the potential seen at a lattice location due to its environment has given rise to such things as the muffin tin potential. Or the pseudopotential. Which is now quite respectable and well established. Unlike when it was first introduced, and some said "pseudopotential...pseudophysics".

Anyway, the book will be very useful for new graduate students embarking in theoretical solid state physics. Gives you a good handle on the tools you need to use or build.
