Theoretical Solid State Physics


Lecture details

The lecture will be given by Professor Mazzarello.


The aim of the course is to provide a thorough introduction to the theory of crystalline materials. The goal is threefold:
- elucidate the main theoretical concepts;
- introduce computational methods used to study solids;
- illustrate important properties of solids and provide concrete examples.
