Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Student will understand the relation between geometrical structure and chemical composition of matter on one hand, and its macroscopic physical properties, such as stability, elasticity, thermal, conductive or optical properties.
Course contents:
Crystal lattice reciprocal lattice and X-ray diffraction; separation of the motion of ionic nuclei and electrons, Born-Oppenheimer approximation; simple models of cohesive energy of solids; electronic band structure of solids, Bloch theorem and its consequences; electronic structure of metals; tight-binding method; ground state properties of matter; semiclassical dynamics of electrons, Boltzman kinetic equation; macroscopic Maxwell equations, polarisation, susceptibility and Kramers-Kroning relations; Drude model of the susceptibility, quantum theory of susceptibility; phonons and their contribution to thermal capacity of solids.
