It is assumed that the reader has some familiarity with thermal and statistical physics and with relativistic quantum field theory. Topics include functional integral representation of the partition function, diagrammatic expansions, linear response theory, screening and collective oscillations, equations of state, phase transitions, restoration of spontaneously broken symmetries, Goldstone theorem, and infrared problems. Specific physical theories treated include QED, QCD, the Weinberg-Salam model, and effective nuclear field theories."
