Electrons in a Periodic Crystal

  • Claus F. Klingshirn
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)


The band structure model for (crystalline) solids was developed starting from the late 1920s of the last century. A few of the early references are. Starting from the mid 1950s, more elaborate theories have been created, band structure calculations started and localization effects in disordered systems came into focus.
