Back in 2007 Prof Kitaev offered a course on advanced condensed matter physics with very well hand-written notes (see the syllabus and first page below). I only have the first few weeks of the notes and wish to have the rest for self-study. Unfortunately Prof Kitaev seems no longer offer this course nor does he have the plan to publish it into a book (those who are close to him should encourage him to do so!). I have tried to reach Prof Kitaev but you know famous professors are too busy to check up emails from somebody he is not acquainted with. I am trying my luck here to see whether there is anybody who happens to have taken the entire 3-quarter course and willing to share the rest part with me.

  • $\begingroup$ educational or career advice? I am aiming for a comprehensive study on condensed matter physics and to me Kitaev's notes are better than books. $\endgroup$ – PhysicsMath Dec 17 '16 at 2:41
  • $\begingroup$ Probably. But at any rate, this is not within the scope of this site. You could ask in Physics Chat though. $\endgroup$ – David Z Dec 17 '16 at 2:43
  • $\begingroup$ @PhysicsMath did you write also to the teaching assistant? Maybe you are more lucky there. $\endgroup$ – ungerade Dec 17 '16 at 10:31
  • $\begingroup$ @DavidZ: Sure! I will check that! Many thanks for pointing that out. I was not aware of its existence! $\endgroup$ – PhysicsMath Dec 17 '16 at 18:50
