Editorial Reviews


"While there are numerous research monographs..., a simple text introducing budding researchers to the fertile methods has been lacking. Professor Auerbach's book has been designed to fill this niche, and it is largely successful in this objective... An excellent feature is a set of exercises at the end of nearly every chapter, which not only lead the student through some of the mathematical steps left out of the text, but also addresses the ramifications of the concepts.... Auerbach's book is an excellent textbook for graduate students starting research in condensed matter theory, and captures well the excitement and creative ferment of the field in recent times. The student who peruses this book with care will be rewarded with a firm grasp of several current techniques, and the discrimination necessary to apply them with sophistication" -- Fndns. of Physics

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have to be honest and say that I have to spend time with this book to understand everything, but I think this is one of those books that's worth the effort. AFTER a many body class this book is an appropriate way to foray into magnetism. The first thing i'd do is prove eq 2.9 and read chapters 1-3, just read (having some companion text for this 'easier' material is useful here). Once you are beyond chapter 3 you can start to calculate the results yourself. Auerbach talks about the ferro- and antiferro- magnets and different spin representations, RVBs, order and disoder, etc. There is a discussion of the NLsM and some large-N methods. I found it helpful to pull out original references at times. At the end i think you gain perspective on quantitative tools employed in magnetism, but realise also that this book is a text and therefore an introduction to the field. In that sense, i think the point here is to get some basic principle and learn various methods to go apply to new problems. I dont know any other book like it.
