Quantenfeldtheorie des Festkörpers by Hermann Haken

By Hermann Haken

Die Festkorperphysik ist eines der groBen Hauptgebiete der heutigen Physik. Der Festkorper stelIt mit seinen verwickelten elektrischen, optischen, thermischen und magnetischen Eigenschaften ein auBerst reizvolIes Objekt moderner Grundlagen forschung dar. In der Tat gelingt es hier, die oft sehr komplizierten Erscheinungen aufzuklaren und bis in die information hinein zu verfolgen. Das damit verbundene tief greifende Verstandnis der physikalischen Vorgange im Festkorper fUhrt dariiber hinaus zu auBerst wichtigen Anwendungen, z. B. in der Nachrichten-und laptop technik. Der Studierende, der sich in dieses Gebiet einarbeiten wilI, stelIt alIerdings sehr rasch fest, daB hier in groBem Umfang Begriffsbildungen und Methoden der Quantenfeld theorie verwendet werden. Diese Methoden gestatten es nicht nur, die physikalischen Vorgange im Festkorper in eleganter Weise zu beschreiben, sondern sie haben auch zu grundsatzlich neuen Erkenntnissen gefUhrt. Ais hervorragendes Beispiel sei hier nur die Erklarung der Supraleitung erwahnt. Andererseits wird dem Studierenden in einer Kursvorlesung, etwa der Quanten mechanik, kaum die Moglichkeit geboten, dieses wichtige Gebiet kennenzulernen. Aufgabe dieses Buches solI es sein, diese Liicke zu schlieBen, indem es den Leser in einfacher Weise an die Begriffsbildungen und Methoden der Quantenfeldtheorie her anfUhrt. So solIte ein Leser, der mit den mathematischen Kenntnissen der ersten drei Semester und den Grundbegriffen der Quantenmechanik vertraut ist, ohne weiteres in der Lage sein, sich mit Hilfe dieses Buches in die Quantenfeldtheorie des Fest korpers einzuarbeiten.
