Quantum Field Theory and Critical Phenomena

Jean Zinn-Justin


The book is an introduction to quantum field theory and renormalization group. It shows that these frameworks are essential for the understanding of phenomena belonging to many different areas of physics, which range from phase transitions in macroscopic systems to the theory of fundamental interactions. This book emphasizes the common aspects of particle physics and the theory of critical phenomena in a unified framework. Three new chapters have been included in this edition: an introduction to non-relativistic quantum statistical physics; a chapter on critical phenomena in non-magnetic syste ... More

Keywords: critical phenomena, non-magnetic systems, polymers, liquid-vapour, helium superfluid transitions, finite temperature
