- Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 164.95
This text explains the features of quantum and statistical field systems that result from their field-theoretic nature and are common to different physical contexts. It supplies the practical tools for carrying out calculations and discusses the meaning of the results. The central concept is that of effective action (or free energy), and the main technical... more...

How can we know the microscopic world without a measurement theory? What are the general conditions of the world that make possible such knowledge? What are the presuppositions of physical theories? This book includes an analysis of quantum field theory, and quantum mechanics and interacting systems are addressed in a unified framework. more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2007; US$ 139.00
Gives an introduction to quantum field theory, which addresses both mathematicians and physicists, at levels ranging from advanced undergraduate students to professional scientists. This book also presents the state-of-the-art of scientific realization of Einstein's dream of a constructing a theory for the four fundamental forces in the universe. more...
- World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 149.00
This book provides an introduction to topological quantum field theory as well as discrete gauge theory with quantum groups. In contrast to much of the existing literature, the present approach is at the same time intuitive and mathematically rigorous, making extensive use of suitable diagrammatic methods. It provides a highly unified description of... more...

Paul Adrian Maurice Dirac (1902?84) is one of the icons of modern physics. His work provided the mathematical foundations of quantum mechanics. He also made key contributions to quantum field theory and quantum statistical mechanics. He is perhaps best known for formulating the Dirac equation, a relativistic wave equation which described the properties... more...
- Springer 2007; US$ 219.00
Presents a "Clean Quantum Theory of the Electron", based on Dirac's equation. This book offers a mathematical explanation of the well known paradoxes of Dirac's theory, and a connection to classical theory, including the motion of a magnetic moment in the given field, all for a charged particle moving in a given electromagnetic field. more...
Quantum Field Theory in a Semiotic Perspective (Schriften der Mathematisch-naturwissenschaftlichen Klasse der Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften)Springer 2006; US$ 49.99
Viewing physical theories as symbolic constructions came to the fore in the middle of the nineteenth century with the emancipation of the classical theory of the electromagnetic field from mechanics; most notably this happened through the work of Helmholtz, Hertz, Poincaré, and later Weyl. The epistemological problems that nourished this development... more...
- Springer 2006; US$ 139.00
Presents understanding of rigorous quantum field theory through numerous fundamental contributions. This work features topics that include: analytic structures of QFT, renormalization group methods, gauge QFT, stability properties and extension of the axiomatic framework, and QFT on noncommutative Minkowski spacetime. more...
