Solid State Physics
by Adrianus J. Dekker
Publisher: Prentice-Hall 1957
Number of pages: 540
The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to the study of the physical properties of crystalline solids. My aim has been to write an introductory text suitable for senior undergraduate and beginning graduate courses on the solid state in physics, engineering, chemistry, and metallurgy.
