The discovery of superconductor in 1911 can be marked as the inception of contemporary solid state physics. The quest for understanding the mechanism behind superconductivity lasted for decades, until the BCS theory finally arrived in 1957. However, the endeavor to discover high-Tc superconductor continued till today. The rich variations of novel solid state materials also emerged during the past 50 years, with the advancement of materials growth technology. In this course, we will start from some advanced languages of solid state physics such as second quantization and Hubbard model, then discuss several materials systems using these new tools.
