Module overview

This course builds upon the Statistical Mechanics Course (PHYS2024) to form a complete basic course on the fundamentals of the physics of solids. After the course the student should have developed the necessary theoretical knowledge to enable them to understand and explain some of the most important properties of materials such as their melting temperature, electronic properties and magnetism.

The course will also provide the necessary grounding to allow students to move onto more advanced topics and research in this industrially and academically important field.
