Quantum Theory of Condensed Matter
by John Chalker
Publisher: Oxford University 2013
Number of pages: 42
I aim to discuss a reasonably wide range of quantum-mechanical phenomena from condensed matter physics, with an emphasis mainly on physical ideas rather than mathematical formalism. The most important prerequisite is some understanding of second quantization for fermions and bosons.

Systematic theoretical enquiry concerning the conceptual foundations and the nature of phonon-mediated electron-electron interactions. We propose a simple scheme to decouple the electrons and nuclei of a crystalline solid via effective interactions.

This book reviews static and dynamic interfacial effects in magnetism, focusing on interfacially-driven magnetic effects and phenomena associated with spin-orbit coupling and intrinsic symmetry breaking at interfaces. It focuses on recent progress...

Important progress in understanding the behavior of hadronic matter at high density has been achieved recently. We discuss the phase diagram of QCD as a function of temperature and density, and close with a look at possible astrophysical signatures.

In this text we give a self-contained introduction to symmetric spaces and their main characteristics. We take an algebraic approach; therefore it is not necessary to know almost anything about differential geometry to be able to follow the outline.
