A contemporary, graduate-level advent to many-body physics in condensed subject, this textbook explains the instruments and ideas wanted for a research-level realizing of the correlated habit of quantum fluids. beginning with an operator-based advent to the quantum box idea of many-body physics, this textbook provides the Feynman diagram process, Green's capabilities and finite-temperature many physique physics earlier than constructing the trail indispensable method of interacting platforms. distinctive chapters are dedicated to the options of Fermi liquid conception, damaged symmetry, conduction in disordered platforms, superconductivity and the physics of local-moment metals. a robust emphasis on options and various workouts make this a useful direction publication for graduate scholars in condensed topic physics. it is going to additionally curiosity scholars in nuclear, atomic and particle physics.
