Website Detail Page

written by Robert Silsbee
The SSS package consists of a set of 14 computer simulations and an accompanying guidebook, Simulations for Solid State Physics: An Interactive Resource for Students and Teachers, authored by Robert H. Silsbee and Joerg Draeger. The general information page gives background information about the SSS Project. The full SSS package is no longer available from Cambridge University Press, but the simulations are free for download and a paperback text is available for purchase.
