Solid State Physics Course
(Physics 4309-5304) Lectures
(Power Point) are under
GOALis to post a lecture before we discuss a topic in class,
but I can't promise!

(Material from Kittel's
Ch. 6 plus many outside sources.)
Note,except for Part I, all lectures here
were prepared by others & found on the internet.Each
discusses one or more Ch. 6 topics. There are several discussions of
the same topics from different sources. I've posted more than one
discussion of each topic in order for you to read more than one
viewpoint on each topic. Looking at the same physics concepts from more
than one viewpoint will hopefully increase your understanding.
