About the Book

This book presents a comprehensive introduction to Solid State Physics for undergraduate students of pure and applied sciences and engineering disciplines. It acquaints the students with the fundamental properties of solids starting from their properties. The coverage of basic topics is developed in terms of simple physical phenomenon supplemented with theoretical derivations and relevant models which provides strong grasp of the fundamental principles of physics in solids in a concise and self-explanatory manner.
