The only graduate-level textbook on quantum field theory that fully integrates perspectives from high-energy, condensed-matter, and statistical physics

Quantum field theory was originally developed to describe quantum electrodynamics and other fundamental problems in high-energy physics, but today has become an invaluable conceptual and mathematical framework for addressing problems across physics, including in condensed-matter and statistical physics. With this expansion of applications has come a new and deeper understanding of quantum field theory--yet this perspective is still rarely reflected in teaching and textbooks on the subject. Developed from a year-long graduate course Eduardo Fradkin has taught for years to students of high-energy, condensed-matter, and statistical physics, this comprehensive textbook provides a fully multicultural approach to quantum field theory, covering the full breadth of its applications in one volume.

  • Brings together perspectives from high-energy, condensed-matter, and statistical physics in both the main text and exercises
  • Takes students from basic techniques to the frontiers of physics
  • Pays special attention to the relation between measurements and propagators and the computation of cross sections and response functions
  • Focuses on renormalization and the renormalization group, with an emphasis on fixed points, scale invariance, and their role in quantum field theory and phase transitions
  • Other topics include non-perturbative phenomena, anomalies, and conformal invariance
  • Features numerous examples and extensive problem sets
  • Also serves as an invaluable resource for researchers



量子場論最初是為了描述量子電動力學和其他高能物理的基本問題而發展的,但如今已成為解決物理學各個領域問題的寶貴概念和數學框架,包括凝態物理和統計物理。隨著應用範圍的擴大,對量子場論的理解也變得更加深入,然而這種觀點在教學和教科書中仍然很少見。這本教科書是Eduardo Fradkin多年來對高能物理、凝態物理和統計物理學生授課的綜合成果,提供了一種全面的多元文化量子場論方法,將其應用的廣度涵蓋在一本書中。
