This is a very long and thorough book, which contains material that cannot easily be found elsewhere. I haven't read all of it, but I loved some of its chapters.

His definition and characterisation of functional integrals, and his analysis of renormalisation and divergences are flawless. Within the first seven chapters, the authors derive the key results in euclidian field theory and lay the basis for further developments in renormalization theory and critical phenomena.

Field theory has also been applied to a variety of phenomena in condensed matter physics, including superconductivity, superfluidity and the quantum Hall effect. The concept of the renormalization group has given us a new perspective on field theory in general and on critical phenomena in particular.

Quantum field theory and critical phenomena Jean Zinn-Justin This work, which does not claim to shed any light on any difficult problems, simply tries to describe particle physics and critical phenomena in statistical mechanics in a unified framework.

This volume links field theory methods and concepts from particle physics with those in critical phenomena and statistical mechanics, the development starting from the latter point of view.

Rigor and lengthy proofs are trimmed by using the phenomenological framework of graphs, power counting, etc., and field theoretic methods with emphasis on. inspired by Symanzik’s deep article “Euclidean Quantum Field Theory”, which appeared in the proceedings of the Varenna school on “Local Quantum Theory” [].

A quantum critical point is a point in the phase diagram of a material where a continuous phase transition takes place at absolute zero.A quantum critical point is typically achieved by a continuous suppression of a nonzero temperature phase transition to zero temperature by the application of a pressure, field, or through doping.

Field theory has also been applied to a variety of phenomena in condensed matter physics, including superconductivity, superfluidity and the quantum Hall effect.

The earliest successful classical field theory is one that emerged from Newton's law of universal gravitation, despite the complete absence of the concept of fields from his treatise Philosophiæ.

This is the first book on Quantum Field Theory which emphasizes the common aspects of particle physics and the theory of critical phenomena.

This new fourth edition is completely revised, with more than 50% new material added to the OUP classic. The importance and the beauty of modern quantum field theory resides in the power and variety of its methods and ideas, which find application in domains as different as particle physics, cosmology, condensed matter, statistical mechanics and critical phenomena.

This book introduces the reader to the modern developments in a manner which assumes no previous. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the theory of phase transitions and critical phenomena. The content covers a period of more than years of theoretical research of condensed matter phases and phase transitions providing a clear interrelationship with experimental problems.
