#### Introduction to Quantum Field Theory

CRC Press 2000; US$ 172.95This 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 Is Quantum Field Theory Possible?

Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 224.99How 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...

#### Quantum Field Theory

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 80.00Textbook on elementary particles for graduate students studying quantum field theory and elementary particle theory. more...

#### Discrete Gauge Theory

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 91.00 US$ 82.81This 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...

#### Proceedings Of The Dirac Centennial Symposium

World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 112.00 US$ 101.92Paul 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...

#### Topological Quantum Field Theory and Four Manifolds

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 83.93The emergence of topological quantum ?eld theory has been one of the most important breakthroughs which have occurred in the context of ma- ematical physics in the last century, a century characterizedbyindependent developments of the main ideas in both disciplines, physics and mathematics, which has concluded with two decades of strong interaction... more...

#### Quantum Field Theory of Non-equilibrium States

Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 66.00Quantum field theoretical applications for graduate students in statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics. more...

#### Precisely Predictable Dirac Observables

Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 156.68In this book we are attempting to o?er a modi?cation of Dirac?s theory of the electron we believe to be free of the usual paradoxa, so as perhaps to be acceptable as a clean quantum-mechanical treatment. While it seems to be a fact that the classical mechanics, from Newton to E- stein?s theory of gravitation, o?ers a very rigorous concept, free of... more...

#### Quantum Field Theory in a Semiotic Perspective

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 52.59In this essay we discuss epistemological implications of relativistic quantum ?eld theory. The empirical domain of such a theory is formed by phenomena ascribed tosubnuclearparticles, sometimes still calledelementaryparticles. Thislattermoretraditionaldesignationre?ectsthelastingdesireofphysicists to eventually ?nd and isolate irreducible constituents... more...

#### Rigorous Quantum Field Theory

Birkhäuser Basel 2006; US$ 97.36Jacques Bros has greatly advanced our present understanding of rigorous quantum field theory through numerous fundamental contributions. The impact of his work is also visible in several articles in this book. Quantum fields are considered as genuine mathematical objects, whose various properties and relevant physical interpretations have to... more...
