PHYS 515- Condensed Matter Theory

Condensed Matter Theory (PHYS 515) Course Details

Course Name: Condensed Matter Theory
Code: PHYS 515
Pre-requisite Course(s):  
Objective: Condensed matter physics is the most active area of research in modern physics, whose scope is extremely broad. The ultimate goal of this course is to introduce its central ideas and methodology to the students, and get them prepared for thesis research in both experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics.
Content: Spatial structures of condensed matter systems, crystalline lattices and symmetries, dynamics of lattice vibrations and quantum theory of harmonic crystals, electronic structure of crystals, Drude-Sommerfeld theory of metals, semiclassical transport theory, semiconductors.
