The correlation between the microscopic composition of solids and their macroscopic (electrical, optical, thermal) properties is the goal of solid state physics. This book is the deeply revised version of the French book Initiation à la physique du solide: exercices comméntes avec rappels de cours, written more than 20 years ago. It has five sections that start with a brief textbook introduction followed by exercises, problems with solutions, and comments and that are concluded with questions. It presents a quasi-systematic investigation of the influence of dimensionality changes, from 1D to 3D, via surfaces and 2D quantum wells, on the physical properties of solids. The aim of this book is to teach solid state physics through the use of problems and solutions giving orders of magnitude and answers to simple questions of this field. The numerous comments and problems in the book are inspired from some Nobel Prize–winning research in physics, such as neutron diffraction (1994), quantum Hall effect (1985), semiconducting heterostructures (1973), and tunnel microscope (1986), superconductivity (1987). The book will be helpful for undergraduate- and graduate-level students of solid state physics and chemistry and researchers in physics, chemistry, and materials science.
Jacques Cazaux (1934–2014) was emeritus professor at the University of Reims, France. He did his undergraduate work in physics at the University of Sorbonne, Paris, and obtained his PhD in 1970 from the College of France, Paris, by submitting the thesis titled Anisotropy of Plasmons in Graphite. He then joined the University of Reims as a professor of solid state physics, and there he initiated a research laboratory on surface analysis (XPS and Auger) and material characterization (electron probe microanalysis, electron and X-ray microscopies). His research focused on the physics of secondary electron emission, and he authored more than 150 articles published in scientific journals. In recognition of his special contribution to scientific knowledge, Prof. Cazaux was invited as a speaker at more than 50 international meetings and was on the board of several scientific committees.Review :
"This book is an English translation of the late author’s French book Initiation à la physique du solide: exercices comméntes avec rappels de cours, and is a largely extended and up-to-date edition based on the rapid development in materials science, nanochemistry, and solid state physics. Beyond the standard discussion on crystal structures and diffraction, the author has included neutron diffraction, quantum Hall effects, and novel material like graphene. This highly recommendable book could benefit a broad readership, including graduate students and scientists involved with solid state matter, as it provides an integrated approach by posing numerous problems on each topic and then providing their solutions along with extended commentaries. It presents treatment and problems focused on the specific heat of atomic vibrations and lattices in particular and metals in relation to advancement in band theory, specifically including semiconductors and insulators."

"This book is a compendium of questions and problems from essential topics in solid state physics. It is a translated version of an older French text and can serve as a strong supplement to a course on this subject. Overall, the author's main purpose is to assist students studying the subject. The author engages students through insightful questions and then, in most cases, provides detailed answers. Each chapter begins with a background summary of the relevant theory and equations for problem-solving, followed by numerous solved examples. At the end of every chapter, qualitative and quantitative questions are presented; brief answers are supplied at the end of the book. The work contains helpful diagrams and graphs."
