## Quantum Field Theory in Condensed Matter Physics

**Author**: Alexei M. Tsvelik**Publisher:**Cambridge University Press**ISBN:**1139440500**Category:**Science**Page:**N.A**View:**2228

This book is a course in modern quantum field theory as seen through the eyes of a theorist working in condensed matter physics. It contains a gentle introduction to the subject and therefore can be used even by graduate students. The introductory parts include a derivation of the path integral representation, Feynman diagrams and elements of the theory of metals including a discussion of Landau–Fermi liquid theory. In later chapters the discussion gradually turns to more advanced methods used in the theory of strongly correlated systems. The book contains a thorough exposition of such non-perturbative techniques as 1/N-expansion, bosonization (Abelian and non-Abelian), conformal field theory and theory of integrable systems. The book is intended for graduate students, postdoctoral associates and independent researchers working in condensed matter physics.

*An Introduction*

**Author**: Ramamurti Shankar**Publisher:**Cambridge University Press**ISBN:**1108363989**Category:**Science**Page:**N.A**View:**7869

Providing a broad review of many techniques and their application to condensed matter systems, this book begins with a review of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, before moving onto real and imaginary time path integrals and the link between Euclidean quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. A detailed study of the Ising, gauge-Ising and XY models is included. The renormalization group is developed and applied to critical phenomena, Fermi liquid theory and the renormalization of field theories. Next, the book explores bosonization and its applications to one-dimensional fermionic systems and the correlation functions of homogeneous and random-bond Ising models. It concludes with Bohm–Pines and Chern–Simons theories applied to the quantum Hall effect. Introducing the reader to a variety of techniques, it opens up vast areas of condensed matter theory for both graduate students and researchers in theoretical, statistical and condensed matter physics.

## Lecture Notes on Field Theory in Condensed Matter Physics

**Author**: Christopher Mudry**Publisher:**World Scientific Publishing Company**ISBN:**9814449121**Category:**Science**Page:**744**View:**6540

The aim of this book is to introduce a graduate student to selected concepts in condensed matter physics for which the language of field theory is ideally suited. The examples considered in this book are those of superfluidity for weakly interacting bosons, collinear magnetism, and superconductivity. Quantum phase transitions are also treated in the context of quantum dissipative junctions and interacting fermions constrained to one-dimensional position space. The style of presentation is sufficiently detailed and comprehensive that it only presumes familiarity with undergraduate physics.

## Field Theories in Condensed Matter Physics

**Author**: Sumathi Rao**Publisher:**CRC Press**ISBN:**9780750308762**Category:**Science**Page:**424**View:**5167

The application of field theoretic techniques to problems in condensed matter physics has generated an array of concepts and mathematical techniques to attack a range of problems such as the theory of quantum phase transitions, the quantum Hall effect, and quantum wires. While concepts such as the renormalization group, topology, and bosonization have become necessary tools for the condensed matter physicist, enough open problems and interesting applications remain to drive much activity in this area in the coming years. Field Theories in Condensed Matter Physics presents a comprehensive survey of the concepts, techniques, and applications of the field. Written by experts and carefully edited, the book provides the necessary background for graduate students entering the area of modern condensed matter physics. It also supplies field theorists with a valuable introduction to the areas in condensed matter physics where field theoretic concepts can be fruitfully applied.

## Field Theories for Low-Dimensional Condensed Matter Systems

*Spin Systems and Strongly Correlated Electrons*

**Author**: Guiseppe Morandi,Pasquale Sodano,Arturo Tagliacozzo,Valerio Tognetti**Publisher:**Springer Science & Business Media**ISBN:**3662042738**Category:**Science**Page:**280**View:**7460

This book is especially addressed to young researchers in theoretical physics with a basic background in Field Theory and Condensed Matter Physics. The topics were chosen so as to offer the largest possible overlap between the two expertises, selecting a few key problems in Condensed Matter Theory which have been recently revisited within a field-theoretic approach. The presentation of the material is aimed not only at providing the reader with an overview of this exciting frontier area of modern theoretical physics, but also at elucidating most of the tools needed for a technical comprehen sion of the many papers appearing in current issues of physics journals and, hopefully, to enable the reader to tackle research problems in this area of physics. This makes the material a live creature: while not pretending it to be exhaustive, it is tutorial enough to be useful to young researchers as a starting point in anyone of the topics covered in the book.

*Effective Field Theories of Condensed Matter*

**Author**: Adriaan M. J. Schakel**Publisher:**World Scientific**ISBN:**981281390X**Category:**Science**Page:**390**View:**3591

This textbook covers the main topics in contemporary condensed matter physics in a modern and unified way, using quantum field theory in the functional-integral approach. The book highlights symmetry aspects in acknowledging that much of the collective behaviors of condensed matter systems at low temperatures emerge above a nontrivial ground state, which spontaneously breaks the symmetry.The emphasis is on effective field theories which provide an efficient and powerful description that is valid at long wavelengths and low frequencies. In conjunction with the emphasis on effective theories, a modern approach towards renormalization is taken, whereby a wavenumber cut-off is introduced to set a scale beyond which the microscopic model under consideration ceases to be valid. The unique and innovative character of this presentation, free of historical constraints, allows for a compact and self-contained treatment of the main topics in contemporary condensed matter physics.

## Quantum Field Theory in Strongly Correlated Electronic Systems

**Author**: Naoto Nagaosa**Publisher:**Springer Science & Business Media**ISBN:**9783540659815**Category:**Science**Page:**170**View:**5085

In this book the author extends the concepts introduced in his Quantum Field Theory in Condensed Matter Physics to situations in which the strong electronic correlations are crucial for the understanding of the observed phenomena. Starting from a model field theory to illustrate the basic ideas, more complex systems are analyzed in turn. A special chapter is devoted to the description of antiferromagnets, doped Mott insulators, and quantum Hall liquids from the point of view of gauge theory.

## Applications of Statistical and Field Theory Methods to Condensed Matter

**Author**: Dionys Baeriswyl,Alan R. Bishop,J. Camelo**Publisher:**Springer Science & Business Media**ISBN:**1468457632**Category:**Science**Page:**418**View:**4821

There is no doubt that we have, during the last decade, moved into a "golden age" of condensed matter science. The sequence of discoveries of novel new states of matter and their rapid assimilation into experimental and theoretical research, as well as devices, has been remarkable. To name but a few: spin glasses; incommensurate, fractal, quasicrystal structures; synthetic metals; quantum well fabrication; fractional quantum Hall effect: solid state chaos; heavy fermions; and most spectacularly high-temperature superconductivity. This rapid evolution has been marked by the need to address the reality of materials in "extreme" conditions - - disordered, nonlinear systems in reduced dimensions, restricted geometries and at mesoscopic scales, often with striking competitions between several length and frequency scales, and between strong electron-phonon and electron-electron interactions. In such new territory it is not surprising that very interdisciplinary approaches are being explored and traditional boundaries between subjects and disciplines re-defined. In theory, this is evident, for instance, in attempts: (1) to advance the state of the art for elec tronic structure calculations so as to handle strongly interacting many-body systems and delicate competitions for collective ground states (spin models or many-electron Hamiltoni ans, field theory, band structure, quantum chemistry and numerical approaches); or (2) to understand pattern formation and complex (including chaotic) dynamics in extended sys tems. This demands close involvement with applied mathematics, numerical simulations and statistical mechanics techniques.

## Physik kondensierter Materie

*Kristalle, Flüssigkeiten, Flüssigkristalle und Polymere*

**Author**: Gert Strobl**Publisher:**Springer-Verlag**ISBN:**3642559867**Category:**Science**Page:**383**View:**318

Das Buch gründet auf einer Vorlesung in Freiburg, welche, am Beginn des Hauptstudiums angeboten, gleichermaßen in die Festkörperphysik wie auch die Physik von Flüssigkeiten, Flüssigkristallen und Polymeren einführt. Die verschiedenen Formen kondensierter Materie werden in fünf Kapiteln, Strukturen, Suszeptibilitäten, Molekularfelder, Ströme und die Dynamik betreffend, jeweils gemeinsam behandelt. Die Intention des Buches ist die zusammenhängende Darstellung von Begriffen und Konzepten, die bei der Erfassung der Eigenschaften kondensierter Materie einzuführen sind, unter Verzicht auf eine Schilderung der vielen Einzelheiten. Das Ziel besteht in der Schaffung einer breiten Verständnisgrundlage, von der ausgehend dann ein einfaches Weitergeben und eine Vertiefung in viele Richtungen ermöglicht werden soll.
