Solid State Physics: Problems and Solutions – László Mihály, Michael C. Martin – 1st Edition

Description

Solving homework problems is the single most effective way for to familiarize themselves with the language and details of solid state physics. Testing problem-solving ability is the best means at the professor’s disposal for measuring student progress at critical points in the learning process. This enables any instructor to supplement end-of-chapter assignments with a large number of challenging and engaging practice problems and discover a host of new ideas for creating exam questions.

Designed to be used in tandem with any of the excellent on this subject, Solid State Physics: Problems and provides a self-study approach through which advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate can develop and test their skills while acclimating themselves to the demands of the discipline. Each problem has been chosen for its ability to illustrate key concepts, properties, and systems, knowledge of which is crucial in developing a complete understanding of the subject.
