Spring 2011
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: PHYS 558

This course is an introduction to condensed-matter physics with emphasis on fundamental properties of solids. We will explore crystal structure, phonons and electrons in solids as a basis for understanding the thermal, electronic, and magnetic properties of materials. In addition to lectures and problem sets, there will be several numerical experiments in which computer simulation and visualization tools will be used to explore microscopic properties of materials.

Essential Capabilities: Quantitative Reasoning
Quantitative reasoning is used to evaluate models of how are world works.
