Electrons and Disorder in Solids

V. F. Gantmakher


This book contains modern concepts about the physics of electrons in solids. It is written using a minimum of mathematics, with the emphasis on various physical models aimed at stimulating creative thinking. The book aims to aid in the choice of the most efficient scheme of an experiment or the optimal algorithm of a calculation. Boltzmann and hopping types of conductivity are compared. The qualitative theory of weak localization is presented and its links with the true localization and metal-insulator transitions. Processes that determine the structure of impurity bands are revealed. The conc ... More

Keywords: solid state physics, physics of electrons, creative thinking, experiments, algorithms, Boltzmann, conductivity, weak localization, impurity bands, granular metals
