Synopsis: ``Fundamentals of the Theory of Metals'' has grown out of courses and lectures given by the author over a period of years. Part I is devoted to normal metals and is basically a thoroughly revised version of the author's book ``An Introduction to the Theory of Normal Metals'', originally published in Russian in 1972. It covers the electronic spectra of metals, electrical and thermal conductivities, galvanomagnetic and thermoelectrical phenomena, the behaviour of metals in high-frequency fields, sound absorption and Fermi-liquid phenomena. Part I also deals with the present-day concept of the energy spectra of electrons in metals and with methods that make it possible to study the behaviour of metals in dc and ac fields.
Part II is concerned with the theory of superconductivity and offers a detailed description of two fundamental methods: the microscopic theory based on the Bogoliubov method and the Ginzburg-Landau theory, which allows the description of the behaviour of superconductors close to the critical temperature.
``Fundamentals of the Theory of Metals'' is intended for undergraduate students majoring in physics and also for graduate and postgraduate students, research workers and teachers. The presentation presumes a knowledge of quantum mechanics and quantum statistics, but no special knowledge of metals that goes beyond the course of general physics is needed.
About the Author: Russian-born theoretical physicist Alexei Alexeyevich Abrikosov received the 2003 Nobel Prize for his contributions to condensed matter physics. He earned his Ph.D. on the theory of thermal diffusion in plasmas at the Institute for Physical Problems of the USSR Academy of Sciences in 1951, and four years later received a higher doctorate degree with a thesis on quantum electrodynamics at high energies. In 1966 he was awarded the Lenin Prize, and upon coming to the United States in 1991, he worked as a Distinguished Scientist at the Argonne National Laboratory.
