    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?

    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.
