**Introduction to Solid State Physics**

by Frank Göhmann

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2021**Number of pages**: 116

**Description**:

This is an introduction to the basic concepts, meaning that the emphasis is, in the first instance, on the single-particle aspects. The emphasis is on the explanation of concepts and basic ideas, not always quantitative, and the justification of the use of simplified 'model Hamiltonians'.
