Re: Introduction to Solid State Physics by Charles Kittel [Moderator's Note: This thread is split from a textbook thread: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?p=4275234#post4275234] Exellent book. Especially 1953 year edition. It has no subsequent ideas of Cooper pairing, preventing us of from understanding of HTS. Anticipating words!!! Bloch theorem must be corrected!!!
