Quantum theory of solids by Charles Kittel( Book )

79 editions published between 1963 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 1,383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The object of this textbook is to present the central principles of the quantum theory of solids to theoretical physicists generally and to those experimental solid state physicists who have had a one year course in quantum mechanics ... This book contains problems and is a textbook; it is not a history of the development of the subject."--Preface
Elementary statistical physics by Charles Kittel( Book )

55 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noteworthy for the philosophical subtlety of its foundations and the elegance of its problem-solving methods, statistical mechanics can be employed in a broad range of applications - among them, astrophysics, biology, chemistry, nuclear and solid state physics, communications engineering, metallurgy, and mathematics. Geared toward graduate students in physics, this text covers such important topics as stochastic processes and transport theory in order to provide students with a working knowledge of statistical mechanics. To explain the fundamentals of his subject, the author uses the method of ensembles developed by J. Willard Gibbs. Topics include the properties of the Fermi-Dirac and Bose-Einstein distributions; the interrelated subjects of fluctuations, thermal noise, and Brownian movement; and the thermodynamics of irreversible processes. Negative temperature, magnetic energy, density matrix methods, and the Kramers-Kronig causality relations are treated briefly. Most sections include illustrative problems.

Electricity and magnetism by Edward M Purcell( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in German and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For 50 years, Edward M. Purcell's classic textbook has introduced students to the wonders of electricity and magnetism. The third edition has been brought up to date and is now in SI units. It features hundreds of new examples, problems and figures and contains discussions of real-life applications. The textbook covers all the standard introductory topics, such as electrostatics, magnetism, circuits, electromagnetic waves and electric and magnetic fields in matter. Taking a non-traditional approach, magnetism is derived as a relativistic effect. Mathematical concepts are introduced in parallel with the physics topics at hand, making the motivations clear. Macroscopic phenomena are derived rigorously from microscopic phenomena. With worked examples, hundreds of illustrations and nearly 600 end-of-chapter problems and exercises, this textbook is ideal for electricity and magnetism courses. Solutions to the exercises are available for instructors at www.cambridge.org/9781107014022"--
