Introduction to the Physics of Fluids and Solids by James S. Trefil This interesting, informative survey by a well-known science author ranges from classical physics and geophysical topics, from the rings of Saturn and the rotation of the galaxy to underground nuclear tests. 1975 edition.
Theory of Structural Transformations in Solids by Armen G. Khachaturyan Addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of phase transformation in alloys, this text by a renowned expert formulates aspects of quantitative metallurgy and applies solid-state theoretical concepts to structure problems. 1983 edition.
More than a graduate text and advanced research guide on condensed matter physics, this volume is useful to plasma physicists and polymer chemists, and their students. It emphasizes applications of statistical mechanics to a variety of systems in condensed matter physics rather than theoretical derivations of the principles of statistical mechanics and techniques. Isihara addresses a dozen different subjects in separate chapters, each designed to be directly accessible and used independently of previous chapters. Topics include simple liquids, electron systems and correlations, two-dimensional electron systems, quasi one-dimensional systems, hopping and localization, magnetism, superconductivity, liquid helium, liquid crystals, and polymers. Extensive appendixes offer background on molecular distribution functions, which play important roles in the theoretical derivations.
