List price: $88.00
Author: Joseph Polchinski
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

Volume 2: Superstring Theory and Beyond, begins with an introduction to supersymmetric string theories and goes on to a broad presentation of the important advances of recent years. The book first introduces the type I, type II, and heterotic superstring theories and their interactions. It then goes on to present important recent discoveries about strongly coupled strings, beginning with a detailed treatment of Dbranes and their dynamics, and covering string duality, Mtheory, and black hole entropy, and discusses many classic results in conformal field theory. The final four chapters are concerned with fourdimensional string theories, and have two goals: to show how some of the simplest string models connect with previous ideas for unifying the Standard Model; and to collect many important and beautiful general results on worldsheet and spacetime symmetries.

Quantum Field Theory: A Modern Introduction
Lowest new price: $65.95
Lowest used price: $30.00
List price: $191.95
Author: Michio Kaku

The rise of quantum electrodynamics (QED) made possible a number of excellent textbooks on quantum field theory in the 1960s. However, the rise of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) and the Standard Model has made it urgent to have a fully modern textbook for the 1990s and beyond. Building on the foundation of QED, Quantum Field Theory: A Modern Introduction presents a clear and comprehensive discussion of the gauge revolution and the theoretical and experimental evidence which makes the Standard Model the leading theory of subatomic phenomena. The book is divided into three parts: Part I, Fields and Renormalization, lays a solid foundation by presenting canonical quantization, Feynman rules and scattering matrices, and renormalization theory. Part II, Gauge Theory and the Standard Model, focuses on the Standard Model and discusses path integrals, gauge theory, spontaneous symmetry breaking, the renormalization group, and BPHZ quantization. Part III, Nonperturbative Methods and Unification, discusses more advanced methods which now form an essential part of field theory, such as critical phenomena, lattice gauge theory, instantons, supersymmetry, quantum gravity, supergravity, and superstrings.

A Guide to Feynman Diagrams in the ManyBody Problem: Second Edition (Dover Books on Physics)
Lowest new price: $13.84
Lowest used price: $4.28
List price: $22.95
Author: Richard D. Mattuck
Brand: Richard D Mattuck

"A great delight to read." — Physics Today Among the most fertile areas of modern physics, manybody theory has produced a wealth of fundamental results in all areas of the discipline. Unfortunately the subject is notoriously difficult and, until the publication of this book, most treatments of the topic were inaccessible to the average experimenter or nonspecialist theoretician. The present work, by contrast, is well within the grasp of the nonexpert. It is intended primarily as a "selfstudy" book that introduces one aspect of manybody theory, i.e. the method of Feynman diagrams. The book also lends itself to use as a reference in courses on solid state and nuclear physics which make some use of the manybody techniques. And, finally, it can be used as a supplementary reference in a manybody course. Chapters 1 through 6 provide an introduction to the major concepts of the field, among them Feynman diagrams, quasiparticles and vacuum amplitudes. Chapters 7 through 16 give basic coverage to topics ranging from Dyson's equation and the ladder approximation to Fermi systems at finite temperature and superconductivity. Appendixes summarize the Dirac formalism and include a rigorous derivation of the rules for diagrams. Problems are provided at the end of each chapter and solutions are given at the back of the book. For this second edition, Dr. Mattuck, formerly of the H. C. Orsted Institute and the University of Copenhagen, added to many chapters a new section showing in mathematical detail how typical manybody calculations with Feynman diagrams are carried out. In addition, new exercises were included, some of which gave the reader the opportunity to carry out simpler manybody calculations himself. new chapter on the quantum field theory of phase transitions rounds out this unusually clear, helpful and informative guide to the physics of the manybody problem.

Lowest used price: $18.39
List price: $34.95
Author: Alexander L. Fetter

"Singlemindedly devoted to its job of educating potential manyparticle theorists…deserves to become the standard text in the field." — Physics Today "The most comprehensive textbook yet published in its field and every postgraduate student or teacher in this field should own or have access to a copy." — Endeavor A selfcontained, unified treatment of nonrelativistic manyparticle systems, this text offers a solid introduction to procedures in a manner that enables students to adopt techniques for their own use. Its discussions of formalism and applications move easily between general theory and direct use by offering illustrations of principles to specific cases. Chapters on second quantization and statistical mechanics introduce students to groundstate (zerotemperature) formalism, which is explored by way of Green’s functions and field theory (fermions), Fermi systems, linear response and collective modes, and Bose systems. Finitetemperature formalism is examined through field theory at finite temperature, physical systems at finite temperature, and realtime Green’s functions and linear response. Additional topics cover canonical transformations and applications to physical systems in terms of nuclear matter, phonons and electrons, superconductivity, and superfluid helium as well as applications to finite systems. Graduate students will find this text enormously practical in making the transition from taking courses in quantum mechanics to interpreting the vast quantity of literature concerning the manybody problem.
