hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let me start by saying that is my 1st time posting on the forum an so I'm not sure if I should post this here or on the homework/coursework section. This is technically coursework related but doesn't seem to fit the "model" used in that section (it is not specific enough), so if this is the wrong place to post this, I do apologise.

So, in my quantum mechanics class I have been given the option to write a small paper in the upcoming weeks about bogoliubov transformations for extra credit. This is not part of the class curriculum (hence beingextracredit) and I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction regarding useful literature keeping in mind my relatively low understanding of the subject (that would mean: relatively new familiarity with bra-ket notation and creation/destruction operators).

As I started my research I currently have Fetter & Walecka'sQuantum theory of many-particle systemsin my lap (bedside reading) and Kittel'sQuantum theory of solids(that I haven't really looked at yet).

Any books or revisions papers that you might suggest on the topic would be very welcome.

thanks in advance for any help you may provide
