Strain and Stress in Continuous Media. Wave Propagation in Continuous Media. Thermal Properties of Continuous Media. Surface Waves. Dislocations. Classical Theory of the Polaron. Atomistic Quantum Theory of Solids. Phonons. Classical Atomistic Modeling of Crystals. Classical Atomic Diffusion in Solids. Point Defects in Crystals. Theoretical Foundations of Molecular Cluster Computations. Paramagnetism and Diamagnetism in the Electron Gas. Charge Density Waves in Solids.
"What are dislocations? What are phonons? What is phonon
transport? This text describes all that and more in lucid language.
If you're into materials and would like to relearn the
undergraduate condensed matter physics that you wished you knew,
this is the book to read."
