Statistical Field Theory
by H.T.C. Stoof
Publisher: Utrecht University 2002
Number of pages: 66
We give a self-contained introduction to the quantum field theory for many-particle systems, using functional methods throughout. We focus in general on the behavior of so-called quantum liquids, i.e., quantum gases and liquids, but use as an explicit example always the trapped atomic gases that have recently become accesible experimentally.

These notes are concerned with the physics of phase transitions: the phenomenon that in particular environments, many systems exhibit singularities in the thermodynamic variables which best describe the macroscopic state of the system.

A text on two related subjects: thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. Computer simulations and numerical calculations are used in a variety of contexts. The book brings some of the recent advances in research into the undergraduate curriculum.

The author discusses using statistical mechanics to understand real systems, rather than ideal systems that can be solved exactly. In addition dynamics and fluctuations are considered. These notes are an attempt to summarize the main points.
