Solid state theory is an important and imperative part of any syllabus in the fields of physics, chemistry, materials science and electrical engineering; for those pursuing an undergraduate degree in those disciplines, it is vital to grasp at least the main concepts of this topic.
The subject area of solid state engineering is potentially very complex, as it is essentially scientific abstract theory coupled with copious amounts of mathematics including numerous derivations and formulae. Therefore, it is impossible to simplify such a complicated field. Manijeh Razeghi takes a multi-disciplinary approach to the text to address the requirements for engineers and scientists alike. He commendably uses illustrations and worked examples for the benefit of comprehension; this is an excellent and well-rounded book.
Who is it for? Undergraduates and postgraduates in the field of physics, materials science, chemistry and electrical engineering disciplines.
Presentation: Excellent. The text is chatty in its approach as required; it is perfectly complemented by numerous illustrations and worked examples.
Would you recommend it? Definitely for anyone studying solid state theory.
