Joseph I. Kapusta , Charles Gale. The second edition of this book develops the basic formalism and theoretical techniques for studying relativistic quantum field theory at high temperature and density. Specific physical theories treated include QED, QCD, electroweak theory, and effective nuclear field theories of hadronic and nuclear matter. Topics include: functional integral representation of the partition function, diagrammatic expansions, linear response theory, screening and plasma oscillations, spontaneous symmetry breaking, Goldstone theorem, resummation and hard thermal loops, lattice gauge theory, phase transitions, nucleation theory, quark-gluon plasma, and color superconductivity.

Thoroughly revised and updated, this new edition develops the basic formalism and theoretical techniques for studying relativistic field theory at finite temperature and density. It starts with the path-integral representation of the partition function and then proceeds to develop diagrammatic perturbation techniques.
The standard model is discussed, along with the nature of the phase transitions in strongly interacting systems and applications to relativistic heavy ion collisions, dense stellar objects, and the early universe.

Review " This book is highly recommendable to anyone entering the field, and very useful to advanced students in general and to researchers in adjacent topics as well. Topics covered include renormalization, linear response theory, spontaneously broken symmetries, lattice gauge theory, and nucleation theory.

I purchased this book after finishing my first semester of quantum field theory roughly through chapter 9 in Peskin and Schroeder's intro to QFT book in spring I bought this book because I wanted to see what field theory can do when combined with statistical mechanics.
If you share a similar interest, and have had at least 1 semester of QFT I would highly recommend purchasing this book. All the derivations are done clearly and explicitly, with easy to follow examples where appropriate. See all reviews from the United States. There's a problem loading this menu right now.
