    This book provides the basis for a two-semester graduate course on solid-state physics. The first half presents all the knowledge necessary for a one-semester survey of solid-state physics, but in greater depth than most introductory solid state physics courses. Group Theory: Application to the Physics of Condensed Matter, by Mildred S. Dresselhaus, Gene Dresselhaus, and Ado Jorio, has had enormous consumer testing in the way it steers around those obstacles: It was developed for a graduate course taught mostly by Millie Dresselhaus at MIT for more than 30 years, with many revisions of lecture notes. Very much a graduate text or specialist Cited by: 4.

Chapter 23 of Sadri Hassani's Mathematical Physics provides a solid, for a physicist, introduction to group thoery in general.

This includes representation theory also. Having a bit of mathematical understanding of concepts actually helps, to understand the jargon and grasp the true meaning of equations, in my opinion.

This book is an excellent introduction to the use of group theory in physics, especially in crystallography, special relativity and particle physics.

Perhaps most importantly, Sternberg includes a highly accessible introduction to representation theory near the beginning of the by:   While group theory and its application to solid state physics is well established, this textbook raises two completely new aspects.

The book discusses many modern topics including molecular vibrations, homogeneous vector bundles, compact groups and Lie groups, and there is much discussion of the group SU(n) and its representations, which is of great significance in elementary particle physics.

The author also considers applications to solid-state physics. physics that, at least thus far, seem not7 to require much of group theory. I understand that group theory has also played a crucial role in many areas of mathe- matics, for example, algebraic topology, but that is way outside the scope of this Size: KB.
