Lecture notes for an introductory graduate level course in solid state physics. Topics covered are crystal structures, symmetry, diffraction, lattice dynamics, structure of solids, magnetism, electronic transport, superconductivity, semiconductors.
by Yuri M. Galperin
This introduction to modern solid state physics covers basic concepts (geometry of lattices, lattice vibrations, electrons in a lattice), normal metals and semiconductors, basics of quantum transport, and superconductivity.

This is an introduction to the basic concepts, meaning that the emphasis is on the single-particle aspects. The emphasis is on the explanation of concepts and basic ideas, and the justification of the use of simplified 'model Hamiltonians'.
