A First Principles Approach to the Band Theory of Random Metallic Alloys

Abstract

In 1976 and again 1978 Balazs Gyorffy and myself presented lectures at Advanced Study Institutes in Ghent on the developments towards obtaining a first principles theory of electronic states in random alloys. The 1976 lectures were concerned mainly with the formal theory whereas the 1978 lectures were concerned with the nature of the solution of the basic equations; with calculations on real systems and with the comparison of these results with experiment. Since 1978 there have been many further advances in our understanding of random alloys both from the theoretical and from the experimental point of view. It is these developments with which we will be mainly concerned. However, in order to make these lecture notes self-contained I have not hesitated to repeat some of the formal aspects covered in the previous notes.
