Lecture Notes On Field Theory In Condensed Matter Physics Paperback / softback
The aim of this book is to introduce a graduate student to selected concepts in condensed matter physics for which the language of field theory is ideally suited.
The examples considered in this book are those of superfluidity for weakly interacting bosons, collinear magnetism, and superconductivity.
Quantum phase transitions are also treated in the context of quantum dissipative junctions and interacting fermions constrained to one-dimensional position space.
The style of presentation is sufficiently detailed and comprehensive that it only presumes familiarity with undergraduate physics.
