Useful literature

  • S. Blundell: Magnetism in Condensed Matter.
  • Daniel I. Khomskii: Transition Metal Compounds (online via HEIDI)
  • A.H. Morrish: The Physical principles of Magnetism. Reprint from 1965. Detailed and good description on magnetism. Sometimes old notation, but recommended both for introduction and research.
  • W. Nolting, A. Ramakanth: Quantum Theory of Magnetism. Comprehensive theoretical introduction into magnetism. Good theory textbook.
  • P. Fazekas: LECTURE NOTES ON ELECTRON CORRELATION AND MAGNETISM. Very good theory book bridging back magnetism to electron correlations. High level (but also good for experimentalists).
  • N. Majlis: The Quantum Theory of Magnetism. Textbook for a theoretical condensed matter magnetism course. Sophisticated
  • Daniel I. Khomskii: Basic Aspects of the Quantum Theory of Solids: Order and Elementary Excitations (Table of contents)


Literature on group theory in solid state physics

  • M. Tinkham: group theory and quantum mechanics
  • M.J. Lax: Symmetry principles in solid state and molecular physics
  • Powell, Richard C.: Symmetry, Group Theory, and the Physical Properties of Crystals (fulltext online available via HEIDI)
  • Dresselhaus, Dresselhaus, Jorio: Group theory. application to the physics of condensed matter, Springer 2008 (incl. crystal field splittings etc)
