Editorial Reviews

Review

Review from previous edition: "This book is a delight! It is impossible to read it without a smile coming to your lips every few pages. It is a new edition of a well-known undergraduate text, intended for students of electrical engineering, but I am sure any physics student could benefit from reading it ... It is an excellent educational book, and I am sure that it will achieve the aim of the authors, which is to instill a sense of quantum mechanical reasoning into all its readers." --High Temperatures - High Pressures

"An informal and highly accessible writing style, a simple treatment of mathematics, and a clear guide to applications have made this book a classic text in electrical and electronic engineering. Students will find it both readable and comprehensive." --European Journal of Engineering Education

About the Author


Laszlo Solymar was born in 1930 in Budapest. He is Emeritus Professor of Applied Electromagnetism at the University of Oxford and Visiting Professor and Senior Research Fellow at Imperial College, London. He graduated from the Technical University of Budapest in 1952 and received the equivalent of a Ph.D in 1956 from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. In 1956 he settled in England where he worked first in industry and later at the University of Oxford. He did research on antennas, microwaves, superconductors, holographic gratings, photorefractive materials, and metamaterials. He has held visiting professorships at the Universities of Paris, Copenhagen, Osnabrück, Berlin, Madrid and Budapest. He published 8 books and over 250 papers. He has been a Fellow of the Royal Society since 1995. He received the Faraday Medal of the Institution of Electrical Engineers in 1992.

Donald Walsh is an Emeritus fellow of Oriel College, Oxford. He first worked for about seven years at the Mullard Radio Valve Co, developing photo cells and flash tubes, then for about the same period at the Services Electronics Research Labs. (SERL) on travelling wave tubes, klystrons and TR switches. He came to the Department of Engineering Science, Oxford in 1956 as a research fellow to help the newly appointed Reader in Electrical Engineering start a research group in microwave electronics, and later became a lecturer and college fellow.

Format: Paperback
I barely passed Solid Sate Physics as an undergraduate using Kittel, and I probably didn't deserve the passing grade I received since I don't think I understood very much at the end of the class. I inherently liked the subject, and so I picked up the fourth edition of Solymar&Walsh and read it over the summer before beginning graduate school in Applied Physics.

In the past sixteen years I have occasionally done research on materials physics of various kinds, and probably co-authored a dozen papers that touch on the topics covered in this book. I can now finally refer to the classic formal textbbooks such as Kittel and flip through them with some limited enjoyment.

What I really liked about Solymar&Walsh is how it manages to explain everyday technology using introductory level Physics; I have found that this book continues to make an excellent access point for my undergraduate and beginning level graduate students who can solve lots of Quantum Mechanics textbook problems but have no idea why a wafer of Silicon looks black (or why anyone would care).

I am looking forward to receiving the latest edition.

Book has good content but pages are out of place and allover. Equations are helpful and books does a good job explaining everything.

This is a horrible textbook. It does not explain concepts well. Also, there are no example problems in the book. It is very difficult to learn the material without example problems.
