"Annett (physics, University of Bristol) covers three main strands in condensed matter physics in this text for senior undergraduate and graduate students. Subjects are developed in a way which gradually builds up key concepts and the necessary mathematical machinery. The book begins with a review of basics of the Bose-Einstein ideal gas before going into techniques of magnetic trapping and cooling of atoms and the discovery of Bose-Einstein condensates in dilute atomic gases. The physical phenomena of superfluidity are then introduced, and the theory of superconductivity is developed in stages, starting with simpler theories and then developing the mathematical concepts of a quantum coherent state.
