The study of the electronic structure of materials is at a momentous stage, with the emergence of new computational methods and theoretical approaches. Many properties of materials can now be determined directly from the fundamental equations of quantum mechanics, bringing new insights into critical problems in physics, chemistry, and materials science. This volume provides an introduction to the field and describes its conceptual framework, the capabilities of present methods, limitations, and challenges for the future. Each chapter presents thoughtful exercises to emphasize salient points and to challenge the readers understanding.
Richard Martin is Professor of Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is a recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award, and is a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has served on several editorial boards of the APS, including Physical Review and Physical Review Letters, and Reviews of Modern Physics where he was associate editor for condensed matter theory.
