Structure of Matter

UNITEXT for Physics
An Introductory Course with Problems and Solutions
Atoms: general aspects.- Typical atoms.- The shell vectorial model.- Atoms in electric and magnetic fields.- Nuclear moments and hyperfine interactions.- Spin statistics, magnetic resonance, spin motion and echoes.- Molecules: general aspects.- Electronic states in diatomic molecules.- Electronic states in selected polyatomic molecules.- Nuclear motions in molecules and related properties.- Crystal structures.- Electron states in crystals.- Miscellaneous aspects related to the electronic structure.- Vibrational motions of the ions and thermal effects.- Phase diagrams, thermodynamic responses and fluctuations.- Dielectrics and paraelectric-ferroelectric phase transition.- Ferromagnets, antiferromagnets and magnetic phase transition.- Superconductors, the superconductive phase transition and fluctuations.
This textbook, now in its third edition, provides a formative introduction to the structure of matter that will serve as a sound basis for students proceeding to more complex courses, thus bridging the gap between elementary physics and topics pertaining to research activities. The focus is deliberately limited to key concepts of atoms, molecules and solids, examining the basic structural aspects without paying detailed attention to the related properties. For many topics the aim has been to start from the beginning and to guide the reader to the threshold of advanced research. This edition includes four new chapters dealing with relevant phases of solid matter (magnetic, electric and superconductive) and the related phase transitions. The book is based on a mixture of theory and solved problems that are integrated into the formal presentation of the arguments. Readers will find it invaluable in enabling them to acquire basic knowledge in the wide and wonderful field of condensed matter and to understand how phenomenological properties originate from the microscopic, quantum features of nature.
