Band Theory of Solids

An Introduction from the Point of View of Symmetry

Simon L. Altmann

Clarendon Press

  • Only book to provide a simple explanation of solid-state theory using basic ideas (group theory) which chemists are familiar and which make the subject easier to understand
  • Fills a gap between existing books which are either very elementary introductions to the solid state or advanced treatments of solid-state group theory
  • Suitable for chemists, physicists, and materials scientists
