Introduction to Collective Excitations in Solids

  • A. A. Lucas
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 2)

Abstract

An important class of collective excitations of solids are the so-called plasma oscillations i.e. collective motions that the electrons and ions as a whole can undergo either under the influence of external probes or as thermal or quantum mechanical zero-point fluctuations.
