Book 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
