Solid State Physics Quantum mechanics and quantum nature of solids, properties of materials. Band theory in metals and semiconductors. Conduction processes, the p-n junction, transistors and other solid state devices. Field Theory Review of vector analysis and coordinate systems. Coulomb's law and electric field intensity. Gauss's law and electric flux density. The electric potential and potential gradient. Electric fields in material space. Poisson's and Laplace's equations. Capacitance. Biot-Savart's Law and magnetic field intensity. Ampere's circuital law and the magnetic flux density. Magnetic forces. Self and mutual inductances. Time-varying fields and Maxwell's equations. I want to drop Solid State Physics but I have Field Theory next semester. Solid State Physics isn't a pre-requisite for Field Theory but just to make sure, can someone double check?
