Solid-State Physics II
GRS PY 742
Continuation of CAS PY 741; applications of quantum theory to solid-state systems with many-body effects: electron-phonon interaction and the Frölich Hamiltonian, polarons, superconductivity; microscopic theory of magnetism, spin waves, and magnons. Quantum transport theory and the Kubo formula. Scattering theory, localized states, averaging over disorder; Anderson localization. Various topics of current interest: quantum antiferromagnets, charge and spin density waves, heavy fermions, surface physics, quantum Hall effect, metal-insulator transition.
