Theory of Solids I: Course Description

OpenCourseWare 'Theory of Solids I' is the first of two courses offered by MIT considering the academic theory of the physics of solids. Topics include superconductivity, phonons, interaction of electron and phonons, semiconductors and metal properties, band theory and crystal structure. Professor Patrick Lee taught the original course (given through lectures) in the Physics Department.

'Theory of Solids I' OpenCourseWare has lectures and assignments included with the course. To look more deeply into this course and perhaps try some of the problem sets, please visit the academic theory of solid physics course page.
