Effects of Electron-Electron and Electron-Phonon Interactions on the One-Electron States of Solids

Hedin, Lars LU and Lundqvist, Stig O. (1969) In Solid State Physics 23. p.1-181
Abstract
Publisher Summary:

This chapter discusses two major developments that have taken place over the past decade. First is the enormous wealth of energy band calculations that have had tremendous success in explaining the properties of specific solids, but in which the connection with first principles is not always apparent. Second is the spectacular progress of many-body theory applied to the solid state that has given a number of new results, although often of a rather general and formal nature, such as to provide the justification and a formal basis for a one-electron theory. The electron gas problem is treated in some detail here. The problem of the crystal potential is given due attention. It discusses the potential from the ion... (More)

This chapter discusses two major developments that have taken place over the past decade. First is the enormous wealth of energy band calculations that have had tremendous success in explaining the properties of specific solids, but in which the connection with first principles is not always apparent. Second is the spectacular progress of many-body theory applied to the solid state that has given a number of new results, although often of a rather general and formal nature, such as to provide the justification and a formal basis for a one-electron theory. The electron gas problem is treated in some detail here. The problem of the crystal potential is given due attention. It discusses the potential from the ion cores as well as from the valence electrons, and suggests schemes that incorporate essential exchange and correlation effects for the valence electrons. An energy band calculation that properly includes the effects of exchange and correlation describes the elementary excitations called quasi particles. Quasi-particle properties are usually discussed using the remarkable Landau theory of the Fermi liquid. This chapter gives a brief presentation of the theory and reviews the present status of calculations of the Fermi liquid parameters and how they are determined from experiments. (Less)
