Green functions for ordered and disordered systems

Front Cover
North-Holland, 1992 - Science - 694 pages
The book presents an exposition of Green functions and multiple scattering theory (MST) as presently used in the study of the electronic structure of matter. Ordered, as well as substitutionally disordered systems are discussed. This volume deals with both a tight binding approach to and a first-principles formulation of Green functions and multiple scattering theory. It includes extended discussions on such topics as the coherent potential approximation (CPA), and the use of full cell potentials in applications of MST to the calculation of electronic structure of solids. Special emphasis is given to the derivation of formulae within the angular momentum representation, as well as to problems. The book contains a collection of problems of particular interest to students.
