"On May 24, 2000, at a meeting at the Collège de France, the Clay Mathematics Institute announced the creation of a US$7 million prize fund for the solution of seven important classic problems that have resisted solution. The prize fund is divided equally among the seven problems. There is no time limit for their solution.

This volume contains a selection of expository articles on quantum field theory and statistical mechanics by James Glimm and Arthur Jaffe. They include a solution of the original interacting quantum field equations and a description of the physics which these equations contain. Quantum fields were proposed in the late 1920s as the natural framework which combines quantum theory with relativ ity. They have survived ever since. The mathematical description for quantum theory starts with a Hilbert space H of state vectors. Quantum fields are linear operators on this space, which satisfy nonlinear wave equations of fundamental physics, including coupled Dirac, Max well and Yang-Mills equations. The field operators are restricted to satisfy a "locality" requirement that they commute (or anti-commute in the case of fer mions) at space-like separated points. This condition is compatible with finite propagation speed, and hence with special relativity. Asymptotically, these fields converge for large time to linear fields describing free particles. Using these ideas a scattering theory had been developed, based on the existence of local quantum fields

Quantum field theory : a selection of papers in memorian Kurt Symanzik by Arthur Jaffe( Book )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and Italian and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kurt Symanzik was certainly one of the most outstanding theoretical physicists of our time. For thirty years, until his untimely death in 1983, he helped to shape the present form of quantum field theory and its application to elementary particle physics. In memoriam of Kurt" Symanzik leading scientists present their most recent results, giving, at the same time, an overview of the state of the art. This collection was originally published in Vol. 97, 1/2 (1985) of Communications in Mathematical Physics. They range over various inter related topics of interest to Kurt Symanzik. We hope that making this collection available in an accessible and inexpensive way will benefit the physics community. The Publisher Contents To the Memory of Kurt Symanzik 1 By A. Jaffe, H.

Progress in gauge field theory by G. 't Hooft( Book )

2 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The importance of gauge theory for elementary particle physics is by now firmly established. Recent experiments have yielded con vincing evidence for the existence of intermediate bosons, the carriers of the electroweak gauge force, as well as for the presence of gluons, the carriers of the strong gauge force, in hadronic inter actions. For the gauge theory of strong interactions, however, a number of important theoretical problems remain to be definitely resolved. They include the quark confinement problem, the quantita tive study of the hadron mass spectrum as well as the role of topo logy in quantum gauge field theory. These problems require for their solution the development and application of non-perturbative methods in quantum gauge field theory. These problems, and their non-pertur bative analysis, formed the central interest of the 1983 Cargese summer institute on "Progress in Gauge Field Theory." In this sense it was a natural sequel to the 1919 Cargese summer institute on "Recent Developments in Gauge Theories." Lattice gauge theory provides a systematic framework for the investigation of non-perturbative quantum effects. Accordingly, a large number of lectures dealt with lattice gauge theory. Following a systematic introduction to the subject, the renormalization group method was developed both as a rigorous tool for fundamental questions, and in the block-spin formulation, the computations by Monte Carlo programs. A detailed analysis was presented of the problems encountered in computer simulations. Results obtained by this method on the mass spectrum were reviewed

Nonperturbative quantum field theory by G. 't Hooft( )

2 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past 15 years, quantum field theory and classical statistical mechanics have merged into a single field, and the need for nonperturbative methods for the description of critical phenomena in statistical mechanics as well as for problems in elementary particle physics are generally acknowledged. Such methods formed the central theme of the 1987 Cargese Advanced Study Institut. e on "Nonpert. urbat. ive Quantum Field Theory." The use of conformal symmet. ry has been of central interest in recent years, and was a main subject at. t. he ASI. Conformal invariant quantum field theory describes statistical mechanical systems exactly at a critical point, and can be analysed to a remarkable ext. ent. by group t. heoretical methods. Very strong results have been obtained for 2-dimensional systems. Conformal field theory is also the basis of string theory, which offers some hope of providing a unified t. heory of all interactions between elementary particles. Accordingly, a number of lectures and seminars were presented on these two topics. After syst. ematic introductory lectures, conformal field theory on Riemann surfaces, orbifolds, sigma models, and application of loop group theory and Grassmannians were discussed, and some ideas on modular geometry were presented. Other lectures combined' traditional techniques of constructive quant. um field theory with new methods such as the use of index-t. heorems and infinite dimensional (Kac Moody) symmetry groups. The problems encountered in a quantum mechanical description of black holes were discussed in detail
