Statistical Field Theory

Publisher: University of Cambridge 2010
Number of pages: 75
These notes are concerned with the physics of phase transitions: the phenomenon that in particular environments, quantified by particular values of external parameters such as temperature, magnetic field etc., many systems exhibit singularities in the thermodynamic variables which best describe the macroscopic state of the system.

This introductory text was aimed at giving a basic knowledge of the concepts and methods of statistical physics to the readers, so that they could later on follow more advanced lectures on diverse topics in the field of complex systems.

Written by J. Willard Gibbs, this book was the first to bring together and arrange in logical order the works of Clausius, Maxwell, Boltzmann, and Gibbs himself. The text remains a valuable collection of fundamental equations and principles.

We give a self-contained introduction to the quantum field theory for many-particle systems, using functional methods throughout. We focus in general on the behavior of so-called quantum liquids, i.e., quantum gases and liquids.

The author presents a concise and self-contained introduction to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics with quantum field theory. Readers are assumed to be familiar with the Matsubara formalism of equilibrium statistical mechanics.
