I want a reference to Peierls transition and am looking for the original work by Peierls himself. But none of the citations in the Wikipedia page of Peierls transition is authored by Peierls.

So, did Rudolf Peierls write about Peierls transition in any scientific journal?

  • $\begingroup$ At galileo.phys.virginia.edu/classes/752.mf1i.spring03/… it is stated "Peierls discovered it in the 1930’s when writing a section on one-dimensional models in an introductory solid-state textbook. He put it in the book, but didn’t publish it otherwise." So perhaps a university library near you has a copy of the book? $\endgroup$ – Jon Custer May 18 at 15:01
