Mattuck, A Guide to Feynman Diagrams in the Many-Body Problem• Longer assignments will be given on Fridays, due in 5 days. Tsvelick, Quantum Field Theory in Condensed Matter Physics• Bruus, Many-Body Theory in Condensed Matter Physics: An Introduction• Wen, Quantum Field Theory of Many-body Systems: From the Origin of Sound to an Origin of Light and Electrons• This will have a different focus than the the related module I gave in 2010, introducing diagramatic techniques very early, and working on developing fluency with that language.
In this 9 lecture module I will introduce the language of condensed matter field theory. Abrokosov, Gorkov, Dzyaloshinski, Methods of Quantum Field Theory in Statistical Physics• Short assignments will be given on Wednesdays, due in 2 days.
Most of the rest are lecture notes, and can be accessed by anyone. Quantum field theory is a powerful tool for describing the properties of many-particle systems. Texts available in your local library or book store:• The lectures will typically focus on qualitative and heuristic arguments, leaving the heavy lifting to the homework. Kadanoff and Baym, Quantum Statistical Mechanics• I will not be following any one particular text, but will assign readings from some of the following texts.
As you can see, there are lots of books on this subject.
