Elementary Excitations In Solids: Lectures On Phonons, Electrons, And Plasmons (Advanced Books Classics)
This book has grown from lectures given in an advanced course in the theory of solids at the University of Illinois during the fall semester 1961-62.

This book has grown from lectures given in an advanced course in the theory of solids at the University of Illinois during the fall semester 1961-62. It was assumed that the student possessed a knowledge of quantum mechanics equivalent to a year's course in that topic; no prior knowledge of field theory was assumed. The course was designed to follow one in the one-electron or band theory of solids. However, in the view of the wide applicability (to plasma physics, nuclear physics, low-temperature physics) of many of the physical ideas and techniques developed in the course, a prior knowledge of solid-state physics was not regarded as a sine qua non. For this reason, both Chapter 2 on phonons and Chapter 3 on electrons contain a certain amount of material which is usually included in an introductory solid-state physics course.
