About this Item

Neuware - Using potassium as an example, this work presents a unique approach to the anomalous effects in metals, resulting in knowledge that can be applied to similar materials. Most theoretical predictions on the electric, magnetic, optical, and thermal properties of a simple metal do - surprisingly - not agree with experimental behavior found in alkali metals. The purpose of this volume is to document the many phenomena that have violated expectations. It collects in one place the research by Albert Overhauser, one of the pioneers of the field. His and his collaborators work has led to a unified synthesis of alkali metal peculiarities. The unique collection of 65 reprint papers, commented where necessary to explain the context and perspective, is preceded by a thorough and well paced introduction. The book is meant to advanced solid state physics and science historians. It might also serve as additional reading in advanced solid state physics courses. With a foreword by Mildred and Gene Dresselhaus 687 pp. Englisch. Bookseller Inventory # 9783527408597

From the Back Cover:

This volume on the physics of simple metals features a collection of articles constituting the seminal contributions that Albert Warner Overhauser made to this field with a view toward its future as derived from his own research. He was attracted to simple metals like potassium at an early time (1951) because simple metals allowed him to study the effect of interacting electrons which are responsible for the many interesting and fundamental phenomena exhibited by these simple metals. This research area is now called “emergent phenomena” which address the question of “how do complex phenomena emerge from simple ingredients”. This topic remains at the forefront of condensed matter physics, as cited in the present decadal study by the US National Research Council Condensed Matter and Materials Physics 2010 Committee entitled “The Science of the World Around Us”.
