One-Body Potentials in Crystals

  • N. H. March
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 24)


In these lectures, we shall give an introduction to the basic theory underlying the use of one-body potential theory in crystals. In the course of this discussion, we shall give a few examples to illustrate the theory, and the kind of accuracy one can hope to achieve in particular types of solid, with one-body potential theory. These examples have been chosen from calculations which the author has either been involved in, or of which he has intimate knowledge. In no sense are they claimed to be representative — their role is illustrative.
