Could you kindly tell me where I could find the rudiments and simple applications of symmetries like particle-hole, chiral etc. in the context of condensed matter physics?
Here are some of my favorite resources on the subject of symmetries in condensed matter physics:
Fradkin's Field Theories of Condensed Matter Physics: Discussions of symmetry scattered throughout the chapters. Good, comprehensive discussion, though it has a small bias to topological states of matter.
Xiao-Gang Wen's Quantum Field Theory of Many-Body Systems: Clear emphasis on topological states of matter. A little advanced.
El-Batanouny and Frederick Wooten's Symmetry and Condensed Matter Physics, A Computational Approach: A pedagogical introduction to the nitty gritty of symmetry in condensed matter physics. Discussions on group theory, space groups, tensor fields, phase transitions, and quasi-crystals. Good introduction to the mathematics of symmetry.
