Synopsis:

The content of the lesson is based on quantum-mechanical description of crystalline solid state materials, providing a fundamental base of theoretical description of solid state properties.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1. Fermions, Hartree-Fock approximation, determination of ground state using variational principle.

2. Many-particle quantum systems, electron gas, density functional theory.

3. Nearly-free electron approximation, tight binding approximation (linear combination of atomic orbitals).

4. One-electron description of wave function in solid, APW, OPW, pseudopotentials.

5. Bloch functions, Wannier functions.

6. Brillouin zone, symmetries in solids

7. Electron-phonon interaction, polarons.

8. Electron dynamic in magnetic field: de Hass-van Alphen effect, cyclotron resonance.

9. Calculation of band structure and Fermi surfaces.

10. Semiconductors: band structure, doping states, cyclotron resonance.

11. Topological properties of solids, Berry curvature, Chern charge, surface electron state.

12. Application of Green functions in solids.
