Can anyone recommend some classical textbooks about density waves such as CDW, SDW?

    http://www.amazon.com/Theoretical-Mechanics-Particles-Continua-Alexander/dp/0070206589 This is the one we're using in my school. By Fetter and Walecka.

    Thank u, but what u recommend is a book about classical mechanics, I don't see any connection between classical mechanics and density wave theory as far as I know, for the latter is at least a conception belonged to condensed matter physics. I hope I've made clear my point of view.

    Ah, my bad. I thought that textbook covered condensed matter physics. My bad.

    Wait, statistical mechanics texts? Does that include condensed matter?

    Maybe we can't simply say the word 'include' , for Mechanics (classical mechanics, statistical mechanics, quantum mechanics) is just subjects we learn to understand nature, but condensed matter is a whole field that studies various materials. This field surely uses much knowledge we've known such as quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, solid state physics, crystallography... We both have much to learn :P

    Hey, I just know what my school is using for its texts. Lol. I'm still in modern physics. :c

    It's a class offered at our school. It's like introductory advanced proof based physics. It's what we take right after general.

    mathematical statistics. I'd like to do something in physics though, which is why I'm looking at the sequence.

    You'd be less impressed when I reveal that I want to go into Wall Street, lol. I'm not particularly fond of the idea, but I like money.

    That's what many theoretical physicists do now. That's no shame

    Are you planning on going to grad school? That sounds expensive. :c

    U may not believe it, I am a graduate. In my country (China), grad school is almost free, if you are good enough at study. Couldn't locals apply for TA in America?

    Whoa. Do you go to TsingHua or PekingU? I have friends who are going there to study overseas. :D

    Also, TA position is hard to get. Lol. Competitive.

    :o China is a nice place to get a job nowadays. I've been thinking about learning Chinese.

    yeah, but living in China is annoying, too many people, jammed traffic, high price
