The "Condensed Matter Physics I" Course is given in the first term, for a total number of 48 hours (6 credits). It is compulsory for all the training tracks.
The course will provide theoretical concepts fundamental to understanding the behaviour of electrons in crystals and the basic tools to treat them, both in problems solvable with classical methods and those requiring a quantum treatment. Main topics: models for non-interacting electrons; crystalline lattices and structures; independent electrons in a periodic potential (Bloch electrons) and energy bands; semiconductors; magnetism.
