Electrons and disorder in solids.
Gantmakher, V. F.
International series on monographs on physics
In what he calls a guide rather than a textbook, Gantmakher (solid state physics, Russian Academy of Sciences-Chernogolovka) examines the relationship between electrons and disorder in solids. He assumes readers to be familiar with electrons in an ideal lattice, transport in the tau-approximation, and scattering; but not with superconductivity superconductivity, abnormally high electrical conductivity of certain substances. The phenomenon was discovered in 1911 by Kamerlingh Onnes, who found that the resistance of mercury dropped suddenly to zero at a temperature of about 4.2°K;. or charge-density waves. Among his topics are metals with strong disorder, the effect of the Coulomb coulomb (k`lŏm) [for C. A. de Coulomb], abbr. coul or C, unit of electric charge. The absolute coulomb, the current U.S. interaction on the electron energy spectrum, the scaling hypothesis, chemical localization Customizing software and documentation for a particular country. It includes the translation of menus and messages into the native spoken language as well as changes in the user interface to accommodate different alphabets and culture. See internationalization and l10n. , and the integer quantum Hall effect The quantum Hall effect is a quantum-mechanical version of the Hall effect, observed in two-dimensional electron systems subjected to low temperatures and strong magnetic fields, in which the Hall conductance . Elements of percolation theory In mathematics, percolation theory describes the behavior of connected clusters in a random graph. The applications of percolation theory to materials science and other domains are discussed in the article percolation. are appended. Distributed in the US by Oxford University Press.
