springer.com/librarybooks Springer News 12/2010 R. E. Hummel, University of Florida, Gainsville, FL, USA Electronic Properties of Materials This text on the electrical, optical, magnetic, and thermal properties of materials stresses concepts rather than mathematical formalism. Suitable for advanced undergraduates, it is intended for materials and electrical engineers who want to gain a fundamental understanding of alloys, semiconductor devices, lasers, magnetic materials, and so forth. The book is organized to be used in a onesemester course; to that end each section of applications, after the introduction to the fundamentals of electron theory, can be read independently of the others. Many examples from engineering practice serve to provide an understanding of common devices and methods. Features 7 Widely used, course-tested text is now available in an updated Fourth Edition 7 Introduces the elements of solid-state physics that are required to understand the coverage of electrical, optical, magnetic, and thermal properties of materials and their applications 7 Stresses concepts rather than mathematical formalism From the contents Part I: Fundamentals of Electron Theory: Introduction.
