Orbital Approach to the Electronic Structure of Solids

Enric Canadell, Marie-Liesse Doublet, and Christophe Iung


This book provides an intuitive yet sound understanding of how structure and properties of solids may be related. The natural link is provided by the band theory approach to the electronic structure of solids. The chemically insightful concept of orbital interaction and the essential machinery of band theory are used throughout the book to build links between the crystal and electronic structure of periodic systems. In such a way, it is shown how important tools for understanding properties of solids like the density of states, the Fermi surface, etc. can be qualitatively sketched and used to ... More

Keywords: properties of solids, band theory, electronic structure, orbital interaction, periodic systems, density of states, Fermi surface, quantitative calculations, experimental observations, chemically based notions
