This document is based on my lecture notes for the Winter 2013, University of Toronto Condensed Matter Physics course (PHY487H1F), taught by Prof. Stephen Julian. Official course description: aIntroduction to the concepts used in the modern treatment of solids. The student is assumed to be familiar with elementary quantum mechanics. Topics include: bonding in solids, crystal structures, lattice vibrations, free electron model of metals, band structure, thermal properties, magnetism and superconductivity (time permitting)a This document contains: ac Plain old lecture notes. These mirror what was covered in class, possibly augmented with additional details. ac Personal notes exploring details that were not clear to me from the lectures, or from the texts associated with the lecture material. ac Some worked problems attempted as course prep, for fun, or for test preparation, or post test reflection. ac Links to Mathematica workbooks associated with this course.These mirror what was covered in class, possibly augmented with additional details. ac Personal notes exploring details that were not clear to me from the lectures, or from the texts associated with the lecture material. ac Some worked ...
