## Applications of Statistical and Field Theory Methods to Condensed MatterDionys Baeriswyl, Alan Reginald Bishop, José M. P. Carmelo Contains 36 reviews and technical papers presented under these topical heads: quantum coherence, tunneling & dissipation; conformal invariance and phase transitions; chaos; disorder and localization; spin glasses and heavy fermions' many-body techniques; superconductivity; charge and spin-density waves. Good stuff; a collection in which every condensed matter specialist is likely to find something of interest. (NW) Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com) |
