About the author...Charles Kittel taught solid state physics at the University of California Berkeley from 1951 to 1978. Earlier he had been a member of the solid state physics group at Bell Laboratories. His undergraduate work in physics was a M.I.T. and at the Cavendish Laboratory of Cambridge University. His PhD was from the University of Wisconsin. He has been awarded the Oliver Buckley Prize for Solid State Physics and the Oersted Medal of the American Association of Physics Teachers He is a member of the National Academy of Science and of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is the author of a widely used introductory book on solid state physics.
