Field theory of non-equilibrium systems

Author: Alex Kamenev
Publisher: Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2011.

Summary:
"The physics of non-equilibrium many-body systems is one of the most rapidly expanding areas of theoretical physics. Traditionally used in the study of laser physics and superconducting kinetics, these techniques have more recently found applications in the study of dynamics of cold atomic gases, mesoscopic and nano-mechanical systems. The book gives a self-contained presentation of the modern functional approach to

    schema:description ""The quantum field theory (QFT) is a universal common language of the condensed matter community. As any live language it keeps evolving and changing. The change comes as a response to new problems and developments, trends from other branches of physics and from internal pressure to optimize its own vocabulary to make it more flexible and powerful. There are a number of excellent books which document this evolution and give snapshots of "modern" QFT in condensed matter theory for almost half a century"--"@en ;

The book gives a self-contained presentation of the modern functional approach to non-equilibrium field-theoretical methods. They are applied to examples ranging from biophysics to the kinetics of superfluids and superconductors. Its step-by-step treatment gives particular emphasis to the pedagogical aspects, making it ideal as a reference for advanced graduate students and researchers in condensed matter physics"--"@en ;
