Volume 1, From Brownian Motion to Renormalization and Lattice Gauge Theory (Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics)





  • Описание
  • A comprehensive and timely survey of the application of the methods of quantum field theory to statistical physics, a very active and fruitful area of modern research, is provided in two volumes

    The book concludes with a chapter on random geometry and the Polyakov model of random surfaces, which illustrates the relations between string theory and statistical physics.

    The first volume provides a pedagogical introduction to the subject, discussing Brownian motion, its anticommutative counterpart in the guise of Onsager's solution to the two-dimensional Ising model, the mean field or Landau approximation, scaling ideas exemplified by the Kosterlitz-Thouless theory for the XY transition, the continuous renormalization group applied to the standard phi-to-the-fourth theory the simplest typical case and lattice gauge theory as a pathway to the understanding of quark confinement in quantum chromodynamics

    The second volume covers diverse topics, including strong coupling expansions and their analysis, Monte Carlo simulations, two-dimensional conformal field theory, and simple disordered systems

    Volume 2, Strong Coupling, Monte Carlo Methods, Conformal Field Theory and Random Systems Cambridge Monographs on Mathematical Physics
