not yet rated|write a review
This book presents an analytical theory on the electronic states in low-dimensional systems and finite crystals recently developed by the author based on a differential equation theory approach. This theory gives some exact and general fundamental understandings on the electronic states in ideal low-dimensional systems and finite crystals such as the numbers and the behaviors of electronic states of different types; It provides new insights on some fundamental problems in low-dimensional systems such as surface states, quantum confinement effects etc, some of them are quite different from what are traditionally believed in the solid state physics community.

From the Jacket

The theory of electronic states in the traditionally solid state physics is essentially a theory of electronic states in crystals of infinite size. However, any real crystal always has a finite size. This book presents an analytical theory on the electronic states in ideal low-dimensional systems and finite crystals recently developed ...

The author has been working in various areas in the field of theoretical condensed matter physics for more than twenty years and has published more than ninety research papers. Some of them are well cited.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The book is devoted to the theory of electronic states in crystal that have finite size. Mathematically, this reduces to spectral theory of Schrödinger operator with truncated periodic potential. . The book might be interesting to both physicists and mathematicians." (Aleksander Pankov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1105 (7), 2007)
