Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Combines a two-volume graduate textbook for students with a knowledge of elementary quantum mechanics and statistical physics. Nozieres (statistical physics, College of France, Paris) and Pines (physics, U. of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign) delayed the second volume for over two decades waiting for new findings, then decided to publish the original piece. The first, published in 1966, was subtitled Normal Fermi Liquids and deals with Landau's theory on those, its applications to various fluids and electrons in metals, elementary excitation, response functions, and other topics. The second volume, published in 1990 without a subtitle, treats Bose condensation, the development of Bose liquid theory, a microscopic basis for the two-fluid model and the elementary excitations of liquid helium II.

Synopsis:

Originally published as two separate volumes, The Theory of Quantum Liquids is a classic text that attempts to describe the qualitative and unifying aspects of an extremely broad and diversified field. Volume I deals with ‘normal Fremi liquids, such as 3He and electrons in metals. Volume II consists of a detailed treatment of Bose condensation and liquid 4He, including the development of a Bose liquid theory and a microscopic basis for the two-fluid model, and the description of the elementary excitations of liquid HeII.

About the Author

Phillipe Nozi&egrave;res: professor of physics at the Coll&egrave;ge de France, Paris, he studied at the Ecole Normale Superi&egrave;ure in Paris and conducted research at Princeton University. Dr. Nozi&egrave;res has served as a professor at the University of Paris and at the University of Grenoble. His research is currently based at the Laue Langervin Institute in Grenoble. A member of the Acad&egrave;mie des Sciences, he has been awarded the Wolf Prize, the Holweck Award of the French Physical Society and the Institute of Physics, and the Gold Medal of the C.N.R.S. Dr. Nozi&egrave;res work has been concerned with various facets of the many-body problem, and his work currently focuses on crystal growth and surface physics. David Pines: Center for Advanced Study professor of physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he has made pioneering contributions to an understanding of many-body problems in condensed matter and nuclear physics, and to theoretical astrophysics. Editor of Perseus Frontiers in Physics series and the American Physical Societys Reviews of Modern Physics, Dr. Pines is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Philosophical Society, a Foreign Member of the Academy of Sciences of the U.S.S.R., and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Feenberg Memorial Medal for Contributions to Man-Body Theory in 1985, the P.A.M. Dirac Silver Medal for the Advancement of Theoretical Physics in 1984, and the Friemann Prize in Condensed Matter Physics in 1983.
