Book Description

From the Preface:"The purpose of this book is to present and apply a language and to discuss methods which make it very convenient to exploit such analogies, and which are uniquely suited to describe and explain non-equilibrium phenomena in a rich variety of many-particle systems: the language of time correlation functions and linear response theory."
