Coleman "Introduction to Many-Body Physics" may be a good place to start.

What is condensed matter physics?

Condensed matter physics is a branch of physics that studies the physical properties of matter in its solid and liquid states, including the behavior of atoms and molecules, as well as the interactions between them.

What makes a book on advanced condensed matter physics different from a regular physics book?

An advanced condensed matter physics book focuses specifically on the properties and behavior of matter in its condensed state, rather than covering a broad range of topics in physics. It also assumes a higher level of mathematical and conceptual understanding.

Who is an advanced condensed matter physics book intended for?

An advanced condensed matter physics book is typically intended for graduate students and researchers in the field of condensed matter physics. It may also be useful for advanced undergraduate students with a strong background in physics and mathematics.

What are some common topics covered in an advanced condensed matter physics book?

Some common topics covered in an advanced condensed matter physics book include quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, solid state physics, superconductivity, and magnetism. Other topics may include phase transitions, electronic properties of materials, and topological phases of matter.

What are the benefits of studying advanced condensed matter physics?

Studying advanced condensed matter physics can lead to a deeper understanding of the fundamental properties of matter and their applications in technology. It also allows for the exploration of cutting-edge research in fields such as nanotechnology, materials science, and quantum computing.
