9780199532506: Theories of Defects in Solids (Oxford Classic Texts in the Physical Sciences)

This book surveys the theory of defects in solids, concentrating on the electronic structure of point defects in insulators and semiconductors. The relations between different approaches are described, and the predictions of the theory compared critically with experiment. The physical assumptions and approximations are emphasized. Theory of Defects in Solids begins with the perfect solid, then reviews the main methods of calculating defect energy levels and wave functions. The calculation of observable defect properties is discussed, and finally, the theory is applied to a range of defects that are very different in nature. This book is intended for research workers and graduate students interested in solid-state physics.

Review:

`Review from previous edition It is unique and of great value to all interested in the basic aspects of defects in solids. ' Physics Today

`This is a particularly worthy book, one which has long been needed by the theoretician and experimentalists alike.' Nature

`Stoneham offers a critical survey of the theory of the most common defects in crystals, stressing assumptions made, and attempting to assess their value. He saw that already by the early 1970s, many of the underlying models, approximations, and assertions had been forgotten. His account is for researchers and graduate students in solid state science, both theorists who want to relate their own work to the many previous calculations, and experimentalists who want to know what, if anything, they should believe of present theories. ' SciTech Book News

`[This] is an excellent work which covers both theoretical and experimental bases of the subject. . .[T]his book will be very useful to a wide range of researchers and graduate students interested in solid state science, both to theorists who want to relate their own work to the many previous calculations and to experimentalists who want to know about present theories.
