**About this book :- **
**Quantum Theory of Solids, Second Edition **
** Charles Kittel **.

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. The book is intended for use in a one year graduate course, to follow a year of general education in the facts of solid state physics at the level at least of my earlier book Introduction to Solid State Physics, second edition. Much of the physical background to the theory is developed there, and it is hoped in the next edition to develop the physical interpretation up to the level needed here.

**About Author :- **
The author ** Charles Kittel ** did his undergraduate work in physics at M.I.T and at the Cavendish Laboratory of Cambridge University. He received his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. He worked in the solid state group at Bell Laboratories, along with Bardeen and Shockley, leaving to start the theoretical solid state physics group at Berkeley in 1951. His research has been largely in magnetism and in semiconductors. In magnetism he developed the theories of ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic resonance and the theory of single ferromagnetic domains, and extended the Bloch theory of magnons. In semiconductor physics he participated in the first cyclotron and plasma resonance experiments and extended the results to the theory of impurity states and to electron-hole drops.

He has been awarded three Guggenheim fellowships, the Oliver Buckley Prize for Solid State Physics, and, for contributions to teaching, the Oersted Medal of the American Association of Physics Teachers. He is a member of the National Academy of Science and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
