Description

This book explains the fundamental concepts and theoretical techniques used to understand the properties of quantum systems having large numbers of degrees of freedom. A number of complimentary approaches are developed, including perturbation theory; nonperturbative approximations based on functional integrals; general arguments based on order parameters, symmetry, and Fermi liquid theory; and stochastic methods.

Table of Contents

* Second Quantization and Coherent States * General Formalism at Finite Temperature * Perturbation Theory at Zero Temperature * Order Parameters and Broken Symmetry * Greens Functions * The Landay Theory of Germi Liquids * Further Development of Functional Integrals * Stochastic Methods

About the Series

Frontiers in Physics

This long-standing, widely respected series was founded in 1961 in an effort to put forward coherent works that summarize developments in the most active and interesting areas of physics. It continues to serve that need, including textbooks, monographs, lecture notes, and professional manuals that aid in offering synthetic, authoritative accounts of the present state of the art in key subject areas of wide interest to physicists. The caliber of authors published in the series speaks to the high standards of its publication: R. P. Feynman, D. Pines, L. P. Kadanoff, R. Hofstadter, J. Schwinger, and many others.

New books in the series are commissioned by invitation. Authors are also welcome to contact the publisher, Lou Chosen, Executive Editor, lou.chosen@taylorandfrancis.com, to discuss new title ideas.
