Outline of lecture

At first, concept of temperature and heat will be given. It will be extended to the mechanism in the structure and properties of functional materials. Recent development in high-technology and nano-scale materials will be also given. The latter half of this class is related to magnetic materials. Starting from Schrodinger equation, the class deals the electronic state in crystal fields and the spin interaction to understand the magnetism of various materials.
