THE ELECTRON THEORY OF SIMPLE METALS AND ALLOYS

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The successes and difficulties of the Bloch model of a metal are briefly reviewed, and the Landau quasi-particle theory amd the pseudopotential theory are briefly discussed. These two notions are made the basis for a revised version of the Bloch model that avoids the conceptual difficulties of the original model, while retaining and explaining its appealing features. Well known empirical generalizations concerning the relative importance of conduction-electron density, composition, and structure for the electronic properties are presented, and their implications are reexamined. A theory of the form required by the empirical generalizations is developed. Recent approximate calculations are discussed, and ... continued below

A theory of the form required by the empirical generalizations is developed. Recent approximate calculations are discussed, and a variety of conclusions are drawn from these relating to the possibility of explanation of the empirical generalizations by the theory. 42 references.
