A Modern Approach to Critical Phenomena by Igor Herbut

By Igor Herbut

serious phenomena is without doubt one of the most enjoyable components of recent physics. This 2007 publication offers a radical yet fiscal creation into the rules and methods of the speculation of severe phenomena and the renormalization workforce, from the viewpoint of contemporary condensed subject physics. Assuming uncomplicated wisdom of quantum and statistical mechanics, the e-book discusses part transitions in magnets, superfluids, superconductors, and gauge box theories. specific awareness is given to subject matters resembling gauge box fluctuations in superconductors, the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition, duality modifications, and quantum part transitions - all of that are on the leading edge of physics examine. This booklet comprises a number of difficulties of various levels of trouble, with ideas. those difficulties supply readers with a wealth of fabric to check their figuring out of the topic. it truly is perfect for graduate scholars and more matured researchers within the fields of condensed subject physics, statistical physics, and many-body physics.
