second update of phy487 notes (Condensed Matter Physics)

Posted by peeterjoot on November 16, 2013

Here’s an update of my (incomplete) lecture notes for the Winter 2013, University of Toronto Condensed Matter Physics course (PHY487H1F), taught by Prof. Stephen Julian. This makes updates to these notes since the first, and second versions posted.

NOTE: This v.3 update of these notes is still really big (~16M).  Some of my mathematica generated 3d images appear to result in very large pdfs.

This set of notes includes the following these additions (not many of which were posted separately for this course)

November 15, 2013 Semiconductors

November 13, 2013 Thomas-Fermi screening, and nearly free electron model

November 11, 2013 3 dimensional band structures, Fermi surfaces of real metals

November 05, 2013 Fourier coefficient integral for periodic function

November 04, 2013 Tight binding model

November 04, 2013 Fermi properties, free electron specific heat, bulk modulus

November 01, 2013 Nearly free electron model, periodic potential (cont.)

October 29, 2013 Free electron model of metals

October 28, 2013 Electrons in a periodic lattice

October 23, 2013 Huygens diffraction
