Exactly Solvable Models

  • Gerald D. Mahan
Part of the Physics of Solids and Liquids book series (PSLI)


Every many-body theorist should be knowledgeable about the available exactly solvable models. First, there are not many of them. Second, they are useful for gaining insight into many-particle systems. If the problem to be solved can be related to an exactly solvable one, however vaguely, one can usually gain some insight.
