**Statistical Field Theory**

by H.T.C. Stoof

**Publisher**: Utrecht University 2002**Number of pages**: 66

**Description**:

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.
