I heard this book is very very nice, but too bad I cannot read German...yet..And I heard last year they published an English version, but I cannot find it anywhere.

If anyone knows about it, it will be huge help!

Thank you in advance!


The book is based on the lectures on condensed matter physics held by Prof. Gross at Munich University of Technology. Unfortunately, the book has yet to be translated into English. The university website does give some information on the lecture.

The chapter on additional literature in the book lists a couple of English textbooks on the subject as well:

  • Solid State Physics, Harald Ibach, Hans Lüth, 2. Auflage, Springer Verlag, Berlin (1995)
  • Fundamentals of the Theory of Metals, A. A. Abrikosov, North-Holland, Amsterdam (1988)
  • Quantum Theory of the Solid State, J. Callaway, Academic Press, New York (1991)
  • Advanced Solid State Physics, Philip Phillips, Cambridge University Press, (2012) Principles of the Theory of Solids, J. M. Ziman, Cambridge University Press, Cambridge (1972)
