Short Course Description

The main theme of this Course is how the behavior of a material emerges from the interactions between its atoms. Atoms have electrons, which play a major role in the structural, electrical, optical, magnetic, and thermal properties of a material. For an accurate description of these electrons we will rely on the theory of quantum mechanics. In this way, we will understand why the molar heat capacity is the same for most elemental crystals, why some materials conduct electricity and others do not, why magnets attract iron but not aluminum, or why metals look shiny.
