not yet rated|write a review
The thermodynamic limit is a mathematical technique which allows us to consider crystals (or other macroscopic objects) as infinitely sized periodically arranged molecules. This means that we can derive models in solid state physics from models in quantum chemistry. Based on this technique,the book presents established as well as new mathematical results for a large class of models in quantum chemistry.
