The subject matter of solid state physics supports a profitable interplay of experiment, application, and theory. This course is concerned with the properties that result from the distribution of electrons in metals, semiconductors, and insulators. This course also tells how the elementary excitations and imperfections of real solids can be understood in terms of simple models whose power and utility and now firmly established.
