hello,

do you have any experience with this book:
Condensed Matter Physics, Michael P. Marder, Wiley & Sons.
Is this good for the first contact to condensed matter physics, or can you recomend me another book?

Marder is pretty good.

See this thread - Textbooks on Condensed Matter Physics
http://www.physicsforums.com/showthr...ight=Materials

Hopefully, ZapperZ and Gokul will jump in here.

thank you for the link, Astronuc.

I'm especially interested in quantum-liquid-theory, maybe there are any lecture notes on the web? i did a search and didnt find something, maybe someone is more lucky?

Quantum liquid theory is new to me.

Perhaps this might be of interest -

I haven't heard of "quantum liquid theory" either... Landau's Fermi liquid theory, yes, but not quantum liquid theory.
