Quasi-Particles and Excitons: Models of Structure and Correlation

  • G. Mahler
Part of the NATO Advanced Science Institute Series book series (NSSB, volume 88)


The electronic excitation spectrum of a material depends on its structure, range and type of electronic correlations and the nature of the reference state considered. We discuss these relations by means of simple models, which include disordered and externally driven systems.
