Introduction to Solid State Physics – Charles Kittel – 8th Edition

Since the publication of the first edition over 50 years ago, to Solid State Physics has been the standard solid state physics text for physics students. The author’s goal from the beginning has been to write a that is accessible to undergraduates and consistently teachable. The emphasis in the has always been on physics rather than formal . With each new edition, the author has attempted to add important new developments in the field without sacrificing the ’s accessibility and teachability.

A very important chapter on nanophysics has been written by an active worker in the field. This field is the liveliest addition to solid state science during the past ten years The text uses the simplifications made possible by the wide availability of computer technology. Searches using keywords on a search engine (such as Google) easily generate many fresh and useful references.
