Fundamentals of Thermoelectricity serves as an introduction to thermoelectricity for condensed matter physicists. It gives an account of our current understanding of thermoelectric phenomena in solids by presenting basic theoretical concepts and numerous experimental results. The two theories of phonon drag, the positive Seebeck coefficient of noble metals, and the three-orders-of-magnitude gap between theory and experiment regarding the thermoelectric response of Bogoliubov quasi-particles of a superconductor are among the forgotten puzzles discussed in this book. Among other novelties, it contains an original discussion of the role of the de Broglie thermal wave-length in setting the magnitude of the thermoelectric response in Fermi liquids. A review of thermoelectric experiments in a variety of solids ranging from elements to high-temperature superconductors cuprates would be of interest to researchers exploring correlated electrons.

Describes the modern conceptual basis of thermoelectricity in an intuitive language. It covers a variety of research themes (correlated electrons, superconductivity, spintronics, information entropy, and quantum Hall effect) and across several communities, which have never before been gathered together in a single volume.
