## The geometry of algebraic Fermi curvesThis book outlines a mathematical model for electronic motion at low temperature in a finite, pure sample of a d-dimensional crystal. The authors present current research using the machinery of algebraic geometry and topological methods to determine the entire independent electron approximation. |
