Pre-final-exam update of notes for PHY487 (condensed matter physics)
Posted by peeterjoot on December 2, 2013
Here’s an update of my class notes from Winter 2013, University of Toronto Condensed Matter Physics course (PHY487H1F), taught by Prof. Stephen Julian. This includes notes for all the examinable lectures (i.e. excluding superconductivity). I’ll post at least one more update later, probably after the exam, including notes from the final lecture, and my problem set 10 solution.
NOTE: This v.4 update of these notes is still really big (~18M). Some of my mathematica generated 3d images appear to result in very large pdfs.

December 01, 2013 Lecture 22, Intro to semiconductor physics
December 01, 2013 Lecture 21, Electron-phonon scattering
