Quantum Field Theory Feynman Path Integrals and Diagrammatic Techniques in Condensed Matter
Choice Recommended Title, February 2020
This book explores quantum field theory using the Feynman functional and diagrammatic techniques as foundations to apply Quantum Field Theory to a broad range of topics in physics. This book will be of interest not only to condensed matter physicists but physicists in a range of disciplines as the techniques explored apply to high-energy as well as soft matter physics.
