Foundations of one-electron theory of solids.

338 pp. (English). Hardcover.


Foundations of one-electron theory of solids appears to be the first attempt to systematically deduce the concept of pseudopotential from quantum mechanical scattering theory. First published in Russian in 1981 and revised for the English edition, this book is a comprehensive presentation of pseudopotential theory and its numerous applications. This book: - discusses the relation between energy band calculations and conventional pseudopotential theory; - examines and compares the potentials derived in both approaches; - shows the strong and weak points of the theory; - gives special attention to the practical applications of pseudopotentials, such as the crystal stability of metals and alloys, defect studies, and short-range order problems. The book will be of great value to both students and graduates and should also be a welcome source of information for researchers in the field.
