# Electronic Properties of Materials

Forward written by Prof. Beckman and blah blah blah

As of its conception, this book is explicitly broken into three distinct sections. In the first section, *Quantum Mechanics for Engineers,* the fundamental concepts and mathematics needed for the engineer to operate within a quantum framework are presented. The second section, *Band Theory of Solids,* expands upon the quantum mechanical concepts from the first to explain bonding and the quantum electronic structure of solids. The final section, *Electronic Properties,* explains how the electronic properties of materials come from the electronic structure derived from quantum mechanics.

At this point I do not have a working template, but I'm hoping to make progress on this over time. For now, the pages (chapters) associated with this book are given by direct link
