Condensed Matter Field Theory. Cambridge University PressMar 11, – Science – pages. Conceptual aspects and formal methodology are emphasized, but the discussion is rooted firmly in practical experimental application. Conceptual aspects and formal methodology are emphasized, but the discussion focuses on practical experimental applications drawn largely from condensed matter physics and neighboring fields.
Condensed Matter Field Theory. As well as routine exercises, the text includes extended and challenging problems, with fully worked solutions, designed to provide a bridge between formal manipulations and research-oriented thinking. References to this book Structured Light and Its Applications: Alexander AltlandBen D. His main areas of research include strongly correlated condensed matters systems, mesoscopic and ultracold atom physics. More recently, the interests of the group have focussed on the many-body physics of ultracold atom gases and the study of quantum systems driven far from equilibrium.
This second edition contains two new chapters developing path integral approaches to classical and quantum nonequilibrium phenomena. In the area of stem cell and developmental biology, the group has applied theoretical, statistical and computational approaches to study “emergent” behaviour and self-organization in biological systems.
In the field of condensed matter, the group has made sions in the study of quantum phase coherence effects, localization, superconductivity and collective phenomena in correlated metals, semiconductors and correlated matter-light systems. Research activities of the group in the area of condensed matter physics have been continuously supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council EPSRC through Programme grants and related and, most recently, via a Critical Mass Grant.
