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. First Edition Hb (1989): 0-521-35155-3 First Edition Pb (1994): 0-521-44945-6

Book Description:

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. Topics covered include renormalization, linear response theory, spontaneously broken symmetries, lattice gauge theory, and nucleation theory. 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.

About the Author:

Joseph I. Kapusta is Professor of Physics at the School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Charles Gale is Professor of Physics at the Department of Physics, McGill University, Montreal.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. The 2006 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. Applications to astrophysics and cosmology cover white dwarf and neutron stars, neutrino emissivity, baryon number violation in the early universe, and cosmological phase transitions. Applications to relativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions are also included. The book is written for theorists in elementary particle physics, nuclear physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. Problems are given at the end of each chapter, and numerous references to the literature are included. Seller Inventory # AAV9780521173223
