Statistical Field Theory

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.

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 discusses using statistical mechanics to understand real systems, rather than ideal systems that can be solved exactly. In addition dynamics and fluctuations are considered. These notes are an attempt to summarize the main points.

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.

Statistical classical mechanics and quantum mechanics are two developed theories that contain a number of paradoxes. However the given paradoxes can be resolved within the framework of the existing physics, without introduction of new laws.
