Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the past few decades the powerful methods of statistical physics and Euclidean quantum field theory have moved closer together, with common tools based on the use of path integrals. The interpretation of Euclidean field theories as particular systems of statistical physics has opened up new avenues for understanding strongly coupled quantum systems or quantum field theories at zero or finite temperatures.

Synopsis:

This book opens with a self-contained introduction to path integrals in Euclidean quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics, and moves on to cover lattice field theory, spin systems, gauge theories and more. Each chapter ends with illustrative problems.
