Methods of Quantum Field Theory in Statistical Physics

Front Cover
Acclaimed by American Scientist as "a classic text on field theoretic methods in statistical physics," this comprehensive introduction to the many-body theory and its ramifications was written by three internationally known Russian physicists. It constitutes an invaluable guide to physicists, mathematicians, and others involved in statistical and solid state physics.
