This is a modern book in solid state physics that should be accessible to anyone who has a working level of solid state physics at the Kittel or Ashcroft/Mermin level. The key point of this book is the development of classic topics in a way that makes it easy to present current topics. The book starts with the non-interacting electron gas and develops in great depth such topics of immense currency as the Kondo problem, Bosonizations, local moments in metals, quantum phase transitions, insulator-superconductor and insulator-metal transitions, and the quantum Hall effect. The presentation of these topics starts from the beginning where no prior knowledge is assumed. Hence, this book should be extremely useful to those seeking an introduction tot he practice of modern solid state physics.

Providing an up-to-date and lucid presentation of phenomena across modern advanced-level solid state physics, this new edition builds on a basic understanding to introduce students to the key research with the minimum of mathematics. It covers cutting-edge topics, including electron transport and magnetism in solids, topological insulators and strongly correlated electrons.About the Author:
Philip Phillips received his bachelor's degree in chemistry and mathematics from Walla Walla College in 1979 and his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Washington in 1982. After a Miller Fellowship at Berkeley, he joined the faculty in the Department of Chemistry at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1984-1993). Phillips came to the University of Illinois depart of Physics in 1993 where is now a Full Professor of Physics. Philip Phillips is a theoretical condensed matter physicist who has an international reputation for his work on transport in disordered and strongly correlated low-dimensional systems. His research lies predominantly in quantum, phase transitions with a special emphasis on insulator-superconductor transitions, Mottness, and competing order in strongly correlated electron systems.He is the recipient of the Edward A. Bouchet Award of the American Physical Society (2000), Beckman Associate at Center for Advanced Study (1999), Senior Xerox Faculty Research Award (1998), Miller Postdoctoral Fellowship at University of California, Berkeley (1981-4).
