Product Description

Review

"Annett (physics, University of Bristol) covers three main strands in condensed matter physics in this text for senior undergraduate and graduate students. Subjects are developed in a way which gradually builds up key concepts and the necessary mathematical machinery. The book begins with a review of basics of the Bose-Einstein ideal gas before going into techniques of magnetic trapping and cooling of atoms and the discovery of Bose-Einstein condensates in dilute atomic gases. The physical phenomena of superfluidity are then introduced, and the theory of superconductivity is developed in stages, starting with simpler theories and then developing the mathematical concepts of a quantum coherent state. --SciTech Book News

Format: Paperback
Judging from this volume, Annett seems to be a great teacher and a great writer.

The distance between the material covered here and actual research is quite large, but that's OK, since the book is advertised as a pedagogical introduction, and it is really good at that.

Every chapter includes a number of smartly-chosen problems, the solutions to which are given in an Appendix.

I have given the book 4 stars instead of 5, because it suffers from horrendous copy-editing. Grammatical mistakes, typos in equations, wrong references to previous equations (and the list goes on). One gets the feeling that the publisher received the author's manuscript and published it as is. This makes it very difficult to understand why it's so expensive. Hopefully these errors will be removed in a future edition.

James Annett sure knows how to introduce someone to superconductivity, . As a first step to such a daunting part of modern physics, it really completes its role. Ofcourse if someone wants get to the deep, analytical, parts of superconductivity,this book wasnt written for them.
Again, great great book.

a nice introduction to this subject 7 Feb. 2005
By Villain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As most of the books of this serie, this one is also a successful introduction to the desired subject.

The text is very pedagogical and the author never avoids a calculation which leads to an important result. Every formula is generally commented in order to extract the physics behind.

All the important subjects related to BEC are touched. The main core of the book seems ,for me, understandable by a good undergraduate student.

Of course that won't make you a specialist of this wide subject which required a lot of knowledges from different parts of physics , but at least the most important things will be kwnown and you will have the sufficent stuff to go more deeply in the subject of your choice with the required litterature ( which may be found in the bibliography of the book).

I think it deserves its five stars since the objectives of the books (being an clear introduction without being to light) are definitly reached. Definitly a nice book !

great introduction! 13 May 2011
By LB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's true the book has typos and minor errors. However, it is still an amazing book. This is probably the best introduction to superconductivity ever written, from a pedagogical point of view. Not good for the expert, because it spends so much time explaining basic principles. However, for the beginner, this introductory book will not be an insult to your intelligence, and it will not waste any of your time. It goes straight to the important topics, and overview of current research while building up all the fundamentals needed. Some knowledge of solid state physics is recommended, in fact, probably essential (I can't see myself reading this intro without knowledge of ss physics). Anyhow, what I really liked about the book is how it spends time discussing each topic it introduces - for example, a thorough discussion of macroscopic coherent states is provided, and this is used to motivate the form of the BCS ground state wavefunction. I don't recall seeing this in other textbooks, at least, not at the beginner level. And the presentation by this author is impeccable (apart from the typos) and makes a lot of sense. This book is highly recommended.
