The De Gruyter series Graduate Texts in Condensed Matter (GTCM) covers all aspects of Condensed Matter Physics as e.g.:
for Graduate Students and Researchers.
Series Editor: Professor Dr. Christian Enss, Managing Director of the Kirchhoff Institute for Physics, Ruprecht-Karls-University, Heidelberg/Germany.
Starting from quantum mechanical and condensed matter foundations, this book introduces into the necessary theory behind spin electronics (Spintronics). Equations of spin diffusion, -evolution and -tunelling are provided before an overview is given of simulation of spin transport at the atomic scale. Furthermore, applications are discussed with a focus on elementary spintronics devices such as spin valves, memory cells and hard disk heads.
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.
