About this title

Synopsis:

 

“Altogether this collection of articles provide in one place a valuable and very comprehensive source for understanding quantum field theory, and quantum mechanics, which I would recommend not just for libraries but also for penurious PhD students. It deserves to stand next to the well known collection of articles by Sidney Coleman which added greatly to the understanding of a generation of theoretical physicists.”

Contemporary Physics

 

In this volume, topics are drawn from field theory, especially gauge field theory, as applied to particle, condensed matter and gravitational physics, and concern a variety of interesting subjects. These include geometricalDtopological effects in quantum theory, fractional charge, time travel, relativistic quantized fields in and out of thermal equilibrium and quantum modifications of symmetry in physical systems.

Many readers will find this a useful volume, especially theoretical physicists and mathematicians. The material will be of interest to both the expert who will find well-presented novel and stimulating viewpoints of various subjects and the novice who will find complete, detailed and precise descriptions of important topics of current interest, in theoretical and mathematical physics.

About the Author:

Roman Jackiw is a professor of physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA.
