Summary "The object of this textbook is to present the central principles of the quantum theory of solids to theoretical physicists generally and to those experimental solid state physicists who have had a one year course in quantum mechanics ... This book contains problems and is a textbook; it is not a history of the development of the subject."--Preface.
