**Introduction to Nonequilibrium Quantum Field Theory**

by J. Berges

**Publisher**: arXiv 2004**Number of pages**: 131

**Description**:

Here we give an introduction to efficient functional integral techniques and show how they can be applied in practice. Though we focus on particle physics and cosmology applications, we emphasize that these techniques can be equally applied to other nonequilibrium phenomena in complex many body systems.
