\subsection{Theory of solids}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\subsubsection{Einstein theory of solids}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Einstein assumed that a solid was composed of $3N$ independent
distinguishable quantum oscillators. The Hamiltonian for a single quantum
harmonic oscillator is
\be
\epsilon_{n}=\hbar\omega\left(n+\frac{1}{2}\right) .
\ee
We have
\be
Z_{N}(T,V)={\rm Tr} \exp \left[-\beta\hbar\omega
\sum_{i=1}^{3N}\left(n_{i}+\frac{1}{2}\right)\right] ,
\ee
or
\be
Z_{N}(T,V)= \sum_{n_{1}=0}^{\infty}\cdots\sum_{n_{3N}=0}^{\infty}
\exp \left[-\beta\hbar\omega
\sum_{i=1}^{3N}\left(n_{i}+\frac{1}{2}\right)\right] ,
\ee
which is equivalent to
\be
Z_{N}(T,V)=\left[\frac{\exp(-\beta\hbar\omega/2)}{
1-\exp(-\beta\hbar\omega)}\right]^{3N} .
\ee
The Helmholtz free energy is
\bea
F(T,V,N)&=&-kT\ln Z_{N} \nn
&=&-3NkT\ln\left[\frac{\exp(-\beta\hbar\omega/2)}{
1-\exp(-\beta\hbar\omega)}\right] \nn
&=&\frac{3N\hbar\omega}{2}+3NkT\ln\left[1-\exp(-\beta\hbar\omega)\right] .
\eea
From this expression, we can find $S$, $C_{V}$, and other state functions.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\subsubsection{Debye theory of solids}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
Debye assumed that the oscillators which composed the solids were
coupled. We have
\be
H(\vec{p}^{N},\vec{q}^{N})=
\sum_{i=1}^{3N}\frac{p_{i}^{2}}{2m}+\sum_{i,j=1}^{3N}A_{ij}q_{i}q_{j} .
\ee
The diagonal form is
\be
H(\vec{P}^{N},\vec{Q}^{N})=
\sum_{i=1}^{3N}\frac{P_{i}^{2}}{2m}+\sum_{i=1}^{3N}\frac{m\omega_{i}^{2}}{2}Q_{i}^{2} .
\ee
Where the $\omega_{i}$'s are all different, the Hamiltonian may be rewritten as
\be
\hat{H}=\sum_{i=1}^{3N}\hbar\omega_{i}\left(\hat{N}+\frac{1}{2}\right) .
\ee
Thus,
\be
Z_{N}(T,V)= \sum_{n_{1}=0}^{\infty}\cdots\sum_{n_{3N}=0}^{\infty}
\exp \left[-\beta\hbar
\sum_{i=1}^{3N}\left(n_{i}+\frac{1}{2}\right)\omega_{i}\right] ,
\ee
and the Helmholtz free energy is
\be
F(T,V,N)=\frac{\hbar}{2}\sum_{i=1}^{3N}\omega_{i}+
kT\sum_{i=1}^{3N}\ln\left[1-\exp(-\beta\hbar\omega_{i})\right] .
\ee
