Where to learn about Density of States?

  1. Jul 23, 2012 #1
    I am the point where i need to learn about Density of states, how to explain the concept and how to then calculate it for different systems, however I am unable to find any texts that really explain it on an introductory level. If anyone knows any sources or text that have a good introductory explanation please could you recommend it to me. Currently I am only able to calculate for a single massive non relativistic particle in a cube. Thank you

    You need to enroll in a Solid State Physics class, using a text such as Kittel or Ashcoft and Mermin.
