Synopsis:

The purpose of this lecture is an interpretation of the chemical bonding in solids. The principle of band structure calculation is demonstrated with the help of Tight-binding method. The relations between crystal and electronic structure are manifested for selected materials.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1.Eigenvalues and eigenvectors, direct and reciprocal space.

2.Electronic structure of atoms, LS and jj coupling.

3.Molecular orbitals, symmetry, degeneration.

4.Octahedral complexes, ligand field theory, Tanabe-Sugano diagrams.

5.Walsh diagrams, Jahn-Teller distortion, Peierls distortion.

6.Collective electrons in solids, Bloch functions, band theory, density of states.

7.Hückel's method for cyclic systems.

8.Tight-binding approximation, Hubbard model, Mott's insulator, electron correlation.

9.Electronic structure of selected solids.

10.Electronic structure and magnetic properties, spin-orbit coupling.

11.Electronic structure and transport properties (Seebeck, resistivity).
