Introduction to Statistical Field Theory, Hardback Book

Introduction to Statistical Field Theory Hardback


Knowledge of the renormalization group and field theory is a key part of physics, and is essential in condensed matter and particle physics.

Written for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, this textbook provides a concise introduction to this subject.

The textbook deals directly with the loop expansion of the free energy, also known as the background field method.

This is a powerful method, especially when dealing with symmetries, and statistical mechanics.

In focussing on free energy, the author avoids long developments on field theory techniques.

The necessity of renormalization then follows.
