Condensed Matter Field Theory
This book fieldd a pedagogical introduction to quantum field theory in many-particle physics, emphasizing the applicability of the formalism to concrete problems. This second edition contains two new chapters developing path integral approaches to classical and quantum nonequilibrium phenomena.
Other chapters cover a range of topics, from the introduction of many-body techniques and functional integration, to renormalization group methods, the theory of response functions, and topology. Conceptual aspects and formal methodology are emphasized, but the discussion focuses on practical experimental applications drawn largely from condensed matter physics and neighboring fields. Extended and challenging problems with fully worked solutions provide a bridge between formal manipulations and research-oriented thinking.
Aimed at elevating graduate students to a level where they can engage in independent research, this book complements graduate level alrland on many-particle theory. Read more Read less.

A very thorough and inventive treatment of quantum field theory in the condensed matter context. The book is good at skipping all trivial steps while maintaining all needed for understanding and summarizing results in a way that makes it easy to also use it in an encyclopedia way. I really recommend this book.
It’s often similar to elegance to landau lifshitz. I used the book as a good night literature self learning during the summer to broaden my horizon and if it does well it’s at broadening one’s horizon, too. This book is very clearly written, with good motivation and broad explanations for the underlying philosophy of condensed matter physics.
It introduces important and instructive examples for fairly thorough study, with each example clearly building on the previous one. This book is a good introduction to Field Theory applied in condensed matter physics. In dealing with two difficult subjects the authors do it in a very simple language.
This is very important either to beginners or experts. There are very good solved examples to illustrate each section. Besides, there are small boxes citing the people behind the development of the issue.
Another thing I love is this book comes with a lot of good exercises and problem sets worked out. One person found this helpful. The title says it all. Having worked diligently through the text and the problems at the end of each section, there is essentially a sign error, factor missing, or random factors of i at just about every step. It seems as though it gets worse and worse as you move towards the later chapters of the book.
For anyone looking to work through the problems as practice, prepare yourself for this. You will be on your own and can’t really rely on their work. There are also very many approximations and assumptions that are completely glossed over.
Typos such as this persist throughout the text but are most prevalent in the problems at the end of each chapter. Covers a lot of modern condensed matter topics. Path integral techniques becomes very prevailing in condensed matter theory. I tried several times to start it with not much progress.
This book is excellent starting point if you have already know a little about diagrammatic approach such as Abrikosov, Mahan, or Fetter. You do not need to be an expert in diagrammatic approach to start it though. And you don’t need to have any background in a normal quantum field theory with context of high-energy.
This book contains a chapter about Hubbard-Stratonovich transformation, which is most useful and pertinent to condensed matter, and explains it very clear. Also, the book has an interesting comment on perturbative approach Ch.
The problems in the book are detailed and have answers afterward. They complement the main text very well and actually can be read as the application of the ideas in main text instead of simple exercises. Also they are not too far away from the real research.
I just wish I met this book earlier and it helps me immensely with my work. See all 11 reviews.
