Semi-classical constructions in solid state physics. (English) Zbl 0732.35079

A Schrödinger equation with weak constant magnetic field is considered. Approximate eigenfunctions are constructed in a neighborhood of a saddle point of the Fermi surface. The construction uses solutions of the Weber equation and complex analysis. The problem was studied for a Fermi surface without stationary points by J. C. Guillot, J. Ralston, E. Trubowitz.
