Books for Condensed Matter Physics

I'm looking to learn more about cutting edge research in condensed matter theory.

I hope you'll help me find some recommended articles in the (admittedly very broad) subject.

I have a background in mathematics and quantum field theory, so I want to find articles which are at a high level but do not assume too much condensed matter jargon and are very explicit in their derivations.

I definitely was not looking for books. How is this question a "list question" while the condensed matter book question is not? Closed this thread while leaving the other open is plainly contradictory. – Ryan Thorngren Jul 31 '12 at 10:42
The problem is that condensed matter is an absolutely gigantic field, and the "cutting edge" research cuts way too many edges for any finite list to be useful to anyone. For what it's worth, an (already extremely outdated!) general overview of the kinds of things CM folks care about can be found here: – wsc Mar 8 '13 at 0:46
Thanks for the reference, wsc – Ryan Thorngren Mar 8 '13 at 1:02
