Statistical Field Theory
by R R Horgan
Publisher: University of Cambridge 2010
Number of pages: 75
These notes are concerned with the physics of phase transitions: the phenomenon that in particular environments, quantified by particular values of external parameters such as temperature, magnetic field etc., many systems exhibit singularities in the thermodynamic variables which best describe the macroscopic state of the system.

The goal of this set of lectures is to combine two seemingly unrelated topics: (1) The study of Boolean functions, a field particularly active in computer science; (2) Some models in statistical physics, mostly percolation.

A new approach towards the foundations of Statistical Mechanics is explored. The approach is genuine quantum in the sense that statistical behavior is a consequence of objective quantum uncertainties due to entanglement and uncertainty relations.

The author presents a concise and self-contained introduction to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics with quantum field theory. Readers are assumed to be familiar with the Matsubara formalism of equilibrium statistical mechanics.
