As a continuation of classical condensed matter physics texts, this graduate textbook introduces advanced topics of correlated electron systems, mesoscopic transport,quantum computing, optical excitations and topological insulators. The book is focusing on an intuitive understanding of the basic concepts of these rather complex subjects.
Covers modern many body theory and effects arising from correlated electron systems.
Closes a gap between basic condensed matter textbooks and the forefront of research.
Useful for various graduate courses.
