About the Book :- "Singlemindedly devoted to its job of educating potential many-particle theorists…deserves to become the standard text in the field." — Physics Today "The most comprehensive textbook yet published in its field and every postgraduate student or teacher in this field should own or have access to a copy." — Endeavor A self-contained, unified treatment of nonrelativistic many-particle systems, this text offers a solid introduction to procedures in a manner that enables students to adopt techniques for their own use. Its discussions of formalism and applications move easily between general theory and direct use by offering illustrations of principles to specific cases. Chapters on second quantization and statistical mechanics introduce students to ground-state (zero-temperature) formalism, which is explored by way of Green’s functions and field theory (fermions), Fermi systems, linear response and collective modes, and Bose systems. Finite-temperature formalism is examined through field theory at finite temperature, physical systems at finite temperature, and real-time Green’s functions and linear response. Additional topics cover canonical transformations and applications to physical systems in terms of nuclear matter, phonons and electrons, superconductivity, and superfluid helium as well as applications to finite systems. Graduate students will find this text enormously practical in making the transition from taking courses in quantum mechanics to interpreting the vast quantity of literature concerning the many-body problem.

DESCRIPTION:- From quantum theory to statistical mechanics, the methodologies of physics are often used to explain some of life's most complex biological problems. Exploring this challenging yet fascinating area of study, Molecular and Cellular Biophysics covers both molecular and cellular structures as well as the biophysical processes that occur in these structures. Designed for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in biophysics courses, this textbook features a quantitative approach that avoids being too abstract in its presentation. Logically organized from small-scale (molecular) to large-scale (cellular) systems, the text first defines life, discussing the scientific controversies between mechanists and vitalists, the characteristics of living things, and the evolution of life. It then delves into molecular structures, including nucleic acids, DNA, RNA, interatomic interactions, and hydrogen bonds. After looking at these smaller systems, the author probes the larger cellular structures. He examines the cytoplasm, the cytoskeleton, chromosomes, mitochondria, motor proteins, and more. The book concludes with discussions on biophysical processes, including oxidative phosphorylation, diffusion, bioenergetics, conformational transitions in proteins, vesicle transport, subcellular structure formation, and cell division.

About the Book :- The book covers three main strands: Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC), superfluids and superconductivity. The subjects are developed in a way which gradually builds up the key concepts and the necessary mathematical machinery. The book begins with the simplest of the three topics, BEC, and first thoroughly reviews the basics of the Bose-Einstein ideal gas before going into the techniques of magnetic trapping and cooling of atoms and the discovery of BEC in dilute atomic gases. Superfluidity in helium-4 is more difficult to understand, because it is a strongly interacting quantum liquid. The book introduces the main physical phenomena of superfluidity, and how it follows from the key concept of microscopic quantum coherence and off-diagonal long ranged order. The theory of superconductivity is developed in stages, starting with the simpler London and Ginzburg Landau theories and their main applications, before developing the mathematical concepts of a quantum coherent state and the Bardeen Cooper Schrieffer (BCS) theory. The final chapter deals with the more advanced topics, including superfluid helium-3 and evidence for unconventional Cooper pairing in exotic superconductors. No prior knowledge of quantum many-body theory is assumed, and the necessary mathematical concepts are introduced in a self-contained manner where needed. Contents :- 1. Bose-Einstein condensates 2. Superfluid helium-4 3. Superconductivity 4. The Ginzburg-Landau model 5. The macroscopic coherent state 6. The BCS theory of superconductivity 7. Superfluid helium-3 and unconventional superconductivity A. Solutions and hints to selected exercises About the Author :- James F. Annett, HH Wills Physics Laboratory, University of Bristol, UK.

About the Book :- This book discusses the computational approach in modern statistical physics in a clear yet accessible way, and works out its intimate relations with other approaches in theoretical physics. Individual chapters focus on subjects as diverse as the hard sphere liquid, classical spin models, single quantum particles and Bose-Einstein condensation. They contain in-depth discussions of algorithms ranging from basic enumeration methods to modern Monte Carlo techniques. The emphasis is on orientation. Discussions of implementation details are kept to a minimum. The book heavily relies on illustrations, tables and concise printed algorithms to convey key information: all the material remains easily accessible. The book is fully self-contained: graphs and tables can be readily reproduced by programming at most a few dozen lines of computer code. Most sections lead from an elementary discussion to the rich and difficult problems of contemporary computational and statistical physics, and will be of interest to a wide range of students, teachers and researchers in physics and the neighboring sciences. An accompanying CD allows to incorporate the layout material (illustrations, tables, schematic programs) into the reader's own presentations. Contents :- 1. Monte Carlo Methods 2.

About the Book The first edition of the book has been well-received, that has prompted the authors to produce its second edition with a purpose to empower the reader to develop FORTRAN programs. Assuming the reader has no prior familiarity with programming, the book introduces basic ideas of the problem-solving and FORTRAN programming with applications to various problems in mathematics, physics and statistics. Thus, this book is expected to be useful to the scientific and engineering community where extensive numerical computations are to be performed in these subjects. The present edition includes 58 algorithms, 50 flowcharts and 101 programs, with emphasis on solving non-linear or transcendental equations numerically by different methods. Besides, Euler and RK-4 methods have been used to solve 2nd order differential equations treating them as initial value problems.

About the Book :- This is a comprehensive textbook for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in physics or astrophysics, developing both the formalism and the physical ideas of special and general relativity in a logical and coherent way. The book is in two parts. Part one focuses on the special theory and begins with the study of relativistic kinematics from three points of view: the physical (the classic gedanken experiments), the algebraic (the Lorentz transformations), and the graphic (the Minkowski diagrams). Part one concludes with chapters on relativistic dynamics and electrodynamics. Part two begins with a chapter introducing differential geometry to set the mathematical background for general relativity. The physical basis for the theory is begun in the chapter on uniform accelerations. Subsequent chapters cover rotation, the electromagnetic field, and material media. A second chapter on differential geometry provides the background for Einstein's gravitational-field equation and Schwarzschild's solution. The physical significance of this solution is examined together with the challenges to the theory that have been successfully met inside the solar system. Other applications follow in the final chapters on astronomy and cosmology: These include black holes, quasars, and gravity waves as well as the relativistic features of an expanding universe ¿ including a section on the inflationary model.

About the Book :- This incisive text provides a basic undergraduate-level course in modern optics for students in physics, technology and engineering. The first half of the book deals with classical physical optics; the second principally with the quantum nature of light. Chapters 1 and 2 treat the propagation of light waves, including the concepts of phase and group velocities, and the vectorial nature of light. Chapter 3 applies the concepts of partial coherence and coherence length to the study of interference, and Chapter 4 takes up multiple-beam interference and includes Fabry-Perot interferometry and multilayer-film theory. Diffraction and holography are the subjects of Chapter 5, and the propagation of light in material media (including crystal and nonlinear optics) are central to Chapter 6. Chapters 7 and 8 introduce the quantum theory of light and elementary optical spectra, and Chapter 9 explores the theory of light amplification and lasers. Chapter 10 briefly outlines ray optics in order to introduce students to the matrix method for treating optical systems and to apply the ray matrix to the study of laser resonators. Many applications of the laser to the study of optics are integrated throughout the text. The author assumes students have had an intermediate course in electricity and magnetism and some advanced mathematics beyond calculus. For classroom use, a list of problems is included at the end of each chapter, with selected answers at the end of the book.

Fundamentals of Semiconductor Lasers explains the physics and fundamental characteristics of semiconductor lasers with regards to systems applications. The detailed and comprehensive presentation is unique in that it encourages the reader to consider different semiconductor lasers from different angles. Emphasis is placed on recognizing common concepts such operating principles and structure, and solving problems based on individual situations. The treatment is enhanced by an historical account of advances in semiconductor lasers over the years, discussing both those ideas that have both persisted over the years and those that have faded out. The first four chapters cover the basics of semiconductors, including band structures, optical transitions, optical waveguides, and optical resonators. The remaining chapters discuss operating principles and basic characteristics of semiconductor lasers, and advanced topics including dynamics single-mode lasers, quantum well lasers, and control of spontaneous emission. The reader need only be familiar with undergraduate-level electromagnetism and quantum mechanics. After reading this book, the student will be able to think critically about semiconductor lasers, and be able to read and understand journal papers in the field.

Suitable for a one-semester course in general relativity for senior undergraduates or beginning graduate students, this text clarifies the mathematical aspects of Einstein's theory of relativity without sacrificing physical understanding. The text begins with an exposition of those aspects of tensor calculus and differential geometry needed for a proper treatment of the subject. The discussion then turns to the spacetime of general relativity and to geodesic motion. A brief consideration of the field equations is followed by a discussion of physics in the vicinity of massive objects, including an elementary treatment of black holes and rotating objects. The main text concludes with introductory chapters on gravitational radiation and cosmology. This new third edition has been updated to take account of fresh observational evidence and experiments. It includes new sections on the Kerr solution (in Chapter 4) and cosmological speeds of recession (in Chapter 6). A more mathematical treatment of tensors and manifolds, included in the 1st edition, but omitted in the 2nd edition, has been restored in an appendix. Also included are two additional appendixes – "Special Relativity Review" and "The Chinese Connection" - and outline solutions to all exercises and problems, making it especially suitable for private study Contents Preface Introduction 1.

REVIEWS `The reader will find a concise review of diagrammatic pertubation theory, path-integral quantization, group theory, and renormalization theory. The more advanced concepts - gauge symmetry, chiral symmetry breaking, the Higgs mechanism, asymptotic freedom and the renormalization group - are treated in greater detail. The exposition of these subjects is judiciously combined with applications to the standard theory in a way that brings life to what otherwise might be dull formalism. [...] it will remain, for a long time to come, an excellent introduction to the comprehensive gauge theory of the electroweak and strong interactions.' - David Goss, Physics Today. DESCRIPTION This is a practical introduction to the principal ideas in gauge theory and their applications to elementary particle physics. It explains technique and methodology with simple exposition backed up by many illustrative examples. Derivations, some of well known results, are presented in sufficient detail to make the text accessible to readers entering the field for the first time. The book focuses on the strong interaction theory of quantum chromodynamics and the electroweak interaction theory of Glashow, Weinberg, and Salam, as well as the grand unification theory, exemplified by the simplest SU(5) model. Not intended as an exhaustive survey, the book nevertheless provides the general background necessary for a serious student who wishes to specialize in the field of elementary particle theory. Physicists with an interest in general aspects of gauge theory will also find the book highly useful.

About the Book :- Conventionally, Kelvin probe is an established and powerful tool to measure the work function of metals and semiconductor surfaces; it is a non destructive technique; the surface remains virgin even after the measurement. With the emergence of nano and bio systems, the potential of kelvin probe is truly exceptional and still unexplored. The authors have designed and fabricated a Kelvin probe set up in their laboratory at Indian institute of Technology Madras, Chennai, India. The Kelvin probe equipment is now being manufactured by several companies. So far, the fundamentals and the research results on Kelvin probe are all scattered. This book has been planned in such a way that an outline of the required fundamentals, the rudiments of design factors and the possible precautions one has to exercise in the fabrication and assembling of the equipment are all pooled together to one place. Also, it is the intention of the authors to expose the power of Kelvin probe in conducting Photoemission yield spectroscopy and Surface photovoltage spectroscopy experiments. This book is a modest attempt to describe the fundamentals and the design aspects. It is the earnest hope of the authors that this book may be of good use to the researchers working in the aspects of surface science and surface engineering.

FRANZ MANDL and GRAHAM SHAW School of Physics & Astronomy, The University of Manchester, UK Following on from the successful first (1984) and revised (1993) editions, this extended and revised text is designed as a short and simple introduction to quantum field theory for final year physics students and for postgraduate students beginning research in theoretical and experimental particle physics. The three main objectives of the book are to: • Explain the basic physics and formalism of quantum field theory • To make the reader proficient in theory calculations using feynman diagrams • To introduce the reader to gauge theories, which play a central role in elementary particle physics. Thus, the first ten chapters deal with QED in the canonical formalism, and are little changed from the first edition. A brief introduction to gauge theories (Chapter 11) is then followed by two sections, which may be read independently of each other. They cover QCD and related topics (Chapters 12-15) and the unified electroweak theory (Chapters 16-19) respectively. Problems are provided at the end of each chapter.

Based on the author's well-established courses, Group Theory for the Standard Model of Particle Physics and Beyond explores the use of symmetries through descriptions of the techniques of Lie groups and Lie algebras. The text develops the models, theoretical framework, and mathematical tools to understand these symmetries. After linking symmetries with conservation laws, the book works through the mathematics of angular momentum and extends operators and functions of classical mechanics to quantum mechanics. It then covers the mathematical framework for special relativity and the internal symmetries of the standard model of elementary particle physics. In the chapter on Noether's theorem, the author explains how Lagrangian formalism provides a natural framework for the quantum mechanical interpretation of symmetry principles. He then examines electromagnetic, weak, and strong interaction; spontaneous symmetry breaking; the elusive Higgs boson; and supersymmetry. He also introduces new techniques based on extending space-time into dimensions described by anticommuting coordinates. Features • Explores the modern framework of special relativity, including Lorentz covariance and the Poincare group • Describes Lie group techniques for the standard model and beyond • Provides a stepping-stone to Einstein's work on general relativity • Goes beyond the standard model to explore supertransformations, superspace methods, and more • Includes many worked examples and problems in each chapter This text provides succinct yet complete coverage of the group theory of the symmetries of the standard model of elementary particle physics. It will help readers understand current knowledge about the standard model as well as the physics that potentially lies beyond the standard model.

About the Book This new edition is intended for a one semester course in optics for juniors and seniors in science and engineering; it uses scripts from MathCad, MATLAB, Mathematica, and Maple and provides a simulated laboratory where students can learn by exploration and discovery instead of passive absorption The text covers all the standard topics of a traditional optics course, including: geometrical optics and aberration, interference and diffraction, coherence, Maxwell's equations, wave guides and propagating modes, blackbody radiation, atomic emission and lasers, optical properties of materials, Fourier transforms and FT spectroscopy, image formation, and holography. It contains step by step derivations of all basic formulas in geometrical, wave and Fourier optics. The basic text is supplemented by over 170 files in MathCad, MATLAB, Mathematics, and Maple (many of which are in the text; all scripts are included on the CD), each suggesting programs to solve a particular problem, and each linked to a topic in or application of optics. The computer files are dynamic, allowing the reader to see instantly the effects of changing parameters in the equations. Students are thus encouraged to ask "What if?" questions to assess the physical implications of the formulas. The discussion of Fourier transforms in particular is enhanced by the availability of numerical methods. The book is written for the study of particular project but can easily be adapted to other situations, The threefold arrangement of text, applications, and files makes the book suitable for "self-learning" by scientists or engineers who would like to refresh their knowledge of optics. In the classroom, the MathCad, MATLAB, Mathematics, and Maple scripts can serve as starting points for homework; outside, they can help find solutions to complex problems in engineering applications. Some praise for the previous edition: OPTICS AND PHOTINICS NEWS [OCTOBER 2004] "This book and its companion CD cover geometrical optics, electromagnetic theory, interference, diffraction and coherence theory. Chapters on optical constants, blackbody radiation, emission and absorption, lasers, holography and Fourier transform spectroscopy broaden its scope. The packet contains over 170 MathCAD' files linked to specific topics and applications. ....The main virtues of the book are the excellent photographs of basic optical phenomena. ....The index is comprehensive. ....[The book] will certainly be helpful to ...students in an introductory optics course." THE PHYSICIST (March/April 2004) "The author has developed a suite of model programs covering the whole spectrum of optics from classical geometric ray to wave and modern optics. Illustrative resonator and waveguide modes are also part of the program mix as well as introductory laser theory. In addition to an optics course, this book would be useful in a 3rd or 4th year electromagnetism course as well as an introduction to lasers and resonators. There are certainly more topics in this text than could possibly be covered in the typical 30 hour one semester course. .... All formulas and diagrams are provided in Adobe. pdf files as well for transcription into other software suites or inclusion in notes. This book is a comprehensive optics text that has been written in a mode to encourage students to run the models, do the calculations and generate their own illustrations.... The book would serve as an excellent text for undergraduate use and reference for laboratory simulation experiments." Contents 1. Geometrical Optics 2. Interference 3. Diffraction 4. Coherence 5.

While systems at equilibrium are treated in a unified manner through the partition function formalism, the statistical physics of out-of-equilibrium systems covers a large variety of situations that are often without apparent connection. This book proposes a unified perspective on the whole set of systems near equilibrium: it brings out the profound unity of the laws which govern them and gathers a large number of results usually fragmented in the literature. The reader will find in this book a pedagogical account of the fundamental results: physical origins of irreversibility, fluctuation-dissipation theorem, Boltzmann equation, linear response, Onsager relations, transport phenomena, Langevin and Fokker-Planck equations. The book's comprehensive organisation makes it valuable both as a textbook about irreversible phenomena and as a reference book for researchers. "Its strength no doubt lies in showing how a large variety of subjects close to experimental interest are connected to a basis of fundamental statistical physics... an excellent book that is likely to keep its value when fashion changes." --Henk Hilhorst, Universite Paris-Sud "An extremely thorough, complete and well written reference on all well established aspects of non equilibrium statistical physics and corresponding linear irreversible processes. The book grew out of lectures given over many years at the graduate level in Paris, and is very pedagogical, providing cases and easily accessible knowledge in well written chapters." --Hubert Saleur, University of Southern California Contents 1. Random variables and random processes 2. Linear thermodynamics of irreversible processes 3. Statistical description of out-of-equilibrium systems 4.

An ideal text for advanced undergraduates, Principles of Vibration and Sound, Second Edition provides the foundations needed to understand the acoustics of rooms and musical instruments, as well as the basics for scientists and engineers interested in noise and vibration. The Second Edition contains four new chapters devoted primarily to applications of acoustical principles in everyday life: Microphones and Other Transducers; Sound in Concert Halls and Studios; Sound and Noise Outdoors; and Underwater Sound. Rossing and Fletcher present the physics of mechanical vibrating systems, emphasizing normal modes of vibration. Beginning with the basics of free and forced motions of simple harmonic oscillator (with electrical analogs indicated where appropriate), they then proceed to vibrations in one-dimensional systems, such as strings and bars, and two-dimensional systems, such as membranes and plates. The discussion of coupled systems includes strong as well as weak coupling and presents both mechanical and electrical examples. The treatment includes a fairly detailed discussion of nonlinear systems and self-excited oscillators, as well as a brief explanation of modal analysis, including finite-element methods and modal testing. The second part of the book discusses the propagation of sound in air, including radiation, transmission, absorption, and diffraction. This treatment of radiation covers point, dipole, line, plane and other sources, both with and without baffles, and the propagation of sound in various kinds and shapes of pipes, horns and other acoustics components.

Without plasma processing techniques, recent advances in microelectronics fabrication would not have been possible. But beyond simply enabling new capabilities, plasma-based techniques hold the potential to enhance and improve many processes and applications. They are viable over a wide range of size and time scales, and can be used for deposition, etching, and even process monitoring and diagnosis. Plasma Electronics: Applications in Microelectronic Device Fabrication explains the fundamental physics and numerical methods necessary to bring these technologies from the laboratory to the factory. Beginning with an overview of the basic characteristics and applications of low-temperature plasma, preeminent experts Makabe and Petrovic explore the physics underlying the complex behavior of plasma. They discuss charged particle transport in general and in detail and they give the necessary foundation in macroscopic plasma characteristics and elementary processes in gas phase and on surfaces. After laying this groundwork, the book examines state-of-the-art computational methods for modeling plasma and reviews various important applications including inductively and capacitively coupled plasma, magnetically enhanced plasma, and various processing techniques, while numerous problems and worked examples reinforce the concepts. Uniquely combining physics, numerical methods, and practical applications, Plasma Electronics: Applications in Microelectronic Device Fabrication equips you with the knowledge necessary to scale up lab bench breakthroughs into industrial innovations.

About the Book Nonlinear optical interaction of matter with intense optical fields plays a key role in emerging photonic technologies in the areas of photonics. Recent reports on new kinds of materials exhibiting novel forms of physical mechanisms and innovative proposals for device applications have encouraged further research in the field. An increasing awareness and exposure to the vast scope of nonlinear optics call for a clear understanding of the basic physics involved with an introduction toward applications. The available book on nonlinear optics are of quite a wide variety in terms of content, style, topic coverage and depth of treatment. While most of these books are excellent resources for the researchers, there is a strong need for books appropriate for presenting the subject at the undergraduate or postgraduate levels in Universities. This book has emerged from an attempt to address the requirement of presenting the subject at college level. A one-semester course covering the essentials can effectively be designed based on this. Care has been taken to include rigorous features such as: -elucidation of relevant basic principles of physics -clear exposition of the ideas involved at an appropriate level -coverage of the physical mechanisms of nonlinearity -update on physical mechanisms and emerging photonic materials and -emphasis on the experimental study of nonlinear interactions The topics covered include quantum mechanics of nonlinear interaction of matter and radiation, formalism and phenomenology of nonlinear wave mixing processes, optical phase conjugation and applications, self-focusing and self phase modulation and their role in pulse modification, nonlinear absorption mechanisms and optical limiting applications, photonic switching and bistability, and physical mechanisms leading to nonlinear response in a variety of materials.

"Basic Concepts in Physics: From the Cosmos to Quarks" is the outcome of the authors' long and varied teaching experience in different countries and for different audiences, and gives an accessible and eminently readable introduction to all the main ideas of modern physics. The book’s fresh approach, using a novel combination of historical and conceptual viewpoints, makes it ideal complementary reading to more standard textbooks. The first five chapters are devoted to classical physics, from planetary motion to special relativity, always keeping in mind its relevance to questions of contemporary interest. The next six chapters deal mainly with newer developments in physics, from quantum theory and general relativity to grand unified theories, and the book concludes by discussing the role of physics in living systems. A basic grounding in mathematics is required of the reader, but technicalities are avoided as far as possible; thus complex calculations are omitted so long as the essential ideas remain clear. The book is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students in physics and will also be appreciated by many professional physicists. It will likewise be of interest to students, researchers and teachers of other natural sciences, as well as to engineers, high-school teachers and the curious general reader, who will come to understand what physics is about and how it describes the different phenomena of Nature. Not only will readers of this book learn much about physics, they will also learn to love it.

Discrete phenomena are an important aspect of various complex systems, acting both as underlying driving mechanisms and as manifestations of diverse behaviours. However, the characterisation of these discrete phenomena requires models that go beyond those featured in existing books. Largely concerned with mathematical models used to describe time-varying populations and series of events, The Dynamics of Discrete Populations and Series of Events demonstrates how analytical tools are used to develop, simulate, and solve discrete stochastic models. It provides an understanding of the effect of the competing processes governing the changing number of individuals present in a population, and shows how relatively simple models can be used to generate a wide range of behaviours.

This series of books in physics and related subjects is designed to meet the needs of graduate students. Although not primarily research texts, they point out the direction which research is currently taking and where it is expected to lead. They therefore serve as useful introductory surveys for graduate students, who may otherwise be faced with the formidable task of acquainting themselves with a research topic by reading sophisticated research texts. This text aims to introduce the low-temperature phenomena of superfluidity and superconductivity from a unified viewpoint, with the existence of a macroscopic wave function stressed as the central principle. There is an extensive discussion of macroscopic theories, with major chapters on condensates and excitations, the two-fluid model, vortex states and Josephson effects. Superfluidity in the A and B phases of liquid 3He is described in terms of a microscopic theory of pairing of 3He atoms, and an introduction to the Ginzburg-Landau theory is also given. The authors’ treatment of the Bardeen-Cooper-Schrieffer theory of superconductors covers a full chapter. Full descriptions of relevant experimental results are given throughout the book. The principal new feature of this third edition is the addition of a chapter on high-temperature superconductors, the most exciting development in the field in the las few years. The comprehensive survey of experiment and theory, supplemented by problems at the end of most chapters, makes this an invaluable foundation text for graduate students working in low-temperature physics, and its careful elaboration of basic principles will also make it accessible to final year undergraduate taking specialized courses. In addition, anyone researching superfluids or superconductors would benefit from this systematic exploration of the similarities and contrasts between the two areas.

This series of books in physics and related subjects is designed to meet the needs of graduate students. Although not primarily research texts, the books point out the direction which research is currently taking and where it is expected to lead. They therefore serve as introductory surveys for research students, who might otherwise be faced with the formidable task of acquainting themselves with a research topic by reading sophisticated research texts. A thorough understanding of statistical mechanics depends strongly on the insights and manipulative skills that are acquired through the solving of problems. This book provides over 120 problems with model solutions, illustrating both basic principles and applications ranging from solid-state physics to cosmology. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students of physics and teachers of statistical mechanics couses, will find here an invaluable source of interesting problems to complement those found in standard textbooks. An introductory chapter provides a summary of the basic concepts and results that are needed to tackle the problems, and also serves to establish the notation that is used throughout the book. The problems themselves occupy five further chapters, in which readers are invited to develop their understanding progressively from the simpler aspects of thermodynamics and equilibrium statistical ensembles to the more challenging ideas associated with strongly interacting systems and non-equilibrium processes. Comprehensive solutions to all of the problems are designed to illustrate efficient and elegant problem-solving techniques. Where appropriate, they incorporate extended discussions of the points of principle that arise in the course of the solutions. Finally an appendix provides a useful miscellany of mathematical formulae.

This is a revised edition of the popular text for postgraduate students on Feynman's path integral treatment of gauge theories. There is a new section on instantons and axions, and calculations have been updated to make use of the more precise values of gauge coupling constants now available. The chapters arc basically of the same structure but minor corrections have been made and new material added. Firstly the groundwork is laid with an introduction to classical field theory and the concept of the path integral in nonrelativistic quantum mechanics. The path integral formalism is then applied to the quantum field theory of a scalar field. Next the Feynman rules and the methods needed to calculate scattering amplitudes arc developed, and the idea of renormalisation is introduced. The formalism is then extended to the quantum field theory of fermions which requires path integrals to be evaluated over Grassmann variables. The stage is now set for a discussion of gauge field theories in both the Abelian and non-Abclian cases. There is a detailed treatment of quantum electrodynamics and quantum chromodynamics with emphasis on asymptotic freedom in QCD and here several calculations have been reworked. The elctroweak theory is treated after the concept of spontaneous symmetry breaking has been introduced. In this chapter new material on a classical gauge field configuration which is not a spontaneously broken gauge symmetry is given and instantons and axions arc introduced. The possiblity that one day a single theory might unify quantum chromodynamics and electroweak theory is discussed in a chapter on grand unified theories where again calculations have been updated. Finally, there is an introduction to field theory at finite temperatures, which has applications in cosmology, especially in the first few moments of the universe after the big bang. Throughout the text there are problems to assist readers in developing their understanding of the subject and problems have been added to cover the new material. This books assumes a knowledge of relativistic quantum mechanics but none of quantum field theory. It provides an invaluable introduction to the path integral approach to relativistic quantum field theories. Contents Path integrals. Path integrals in non-relativistic quantum mechanics. Classical field theory. Quantum field theory of a scalar field. Scattering amplitudes. Feynman rules for theory. Renormalisation of theory. Quantum field theory with fermions. Gauge field theory. Feynman rules for quantum chromodynamics and quantum electrodynamics. Renormalisation of QCD and QED at one-loop order. QCD and asymptotic freedom. Spontaneous symmetry breaking. Feynman rules for electroweak theory. Renormalisation of electroweak theory. Grand unified theory. Field theories at finite temperature. Appendices. Index.

About the Book: This book gives a comprehensive account of mathematical physics, assigning a prominent role to the applications of the relevant mathematics to specific parts of physics ranging overfluid mechanics, electromagnetic theory, special relativity, quantum mechanics, quantum optics, random processes, linear response theory, scattering theory, and so on. Rather than emphasising formal proofs of propositions, the results are motivated, stated, elaborated and remarked upon. Their inter-relationships and connections are brought out, and several of their applications are discussed in some detail. There are about 370 exercises and problems interspersed in the text itself at appropriate junctures, so as to facilitate the logical flow of the material without interruption. Wherever applicable, solutions to the problems, or answers with hints as to how to arrive at them, along with relevant remarks, are given at the end of each chapter. This book can also be used as a wide-ranging and fairly self-contained text for self-study, and will be well received by students of physics at all levels (senior undergraduate, masters and doctoral), as well as those who are now teachers of the subject.
