Title  Statistical mechanics and applications in condensed matter 
Author(s)  Carlo Di Castro;Roberto Raimondi 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2015. 
Description  xv, 531p. 
Abstract Note  his innovative and modular textbook combines classical topics in thermodynamics, statistical mechanics and manybody theory with the latest developments in condensed matter physics research. Written by internationally renowned experts and logically structured to cater for undergraduate and postgraduate students and researchers, it covers the underlying theoretical principles and includes numerous problems and worked examples to put this knowledge into practice. Three main streams provide a framework for the book; beginning with thermodynamics and classical statistical mechanics, including mean field approximation, fluctuations and the renormalization group approach to critical phenomena. The authors then examine quantum statistical mechanics, covering key topics such as normal Fermi and Luttinger liquids, superfluidity and superconductivity. Finally, they explore classical and quantum kinetics, Anderson localization and quantum interference, and disordered Fermi liquids. Unique in providing a bridge between thermodynamics and advanced topics in condensed matter, this textbook is an invaluable resource to all students of physics.

Title  Introduction to the Physics of Matter : Basic atomic, molecular, and solidstate physics 
Author(s)  by Nicola Manini 
Description  XI, 276 p. 165 illus., 59 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book offers an uptodate, compact presentation of basic topics in the physics of matter, from atoms to molecules to solids, including elements of statistical mechanics. The adiabatic separation of the motion of electrons and nuclei in matter and its spectroscopic implications are outlined for molecules and recalled regularly in the study of the dynamics of gases and solids. Numerous experiments are described and more than 160 figures give a clear visual impression of the main concepts. Sufficient detail of mathematical derivations is provided to enable students to follow easily. The focus is on presentday understanding and especially on phenomena fitting various independentparticle models. The historical development of this understanding, and phenomena such as magnetism and superconductivity, where interparticle interactions and nonadiabatic effects play a crucial role, are mostly omitted. A final outlook section stimulates the curiosity of the reader to pursue the study of such advanced topics in graduate courses

Title  Quantum theory of nonlinear optics 
Author(s)  Peter D. Drummond;Mark Hillery 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2014. 
Description  ix, 373p. 
Abstract Note  Playing a prominent role in communications, quantum science and laser physics, quantum nonlinear optics is an increasingly important field. This book presents a selfcontained treatment of field quantization and covers topics such as the canonical formalism for fields, phasespace representations and the encompassing problem of quantization of electrodynamics in linear and nonlinear media. Starting with a summary of classical nonlinear optics, it then explains in detail the calculation techniques for quantum nonlinear optical systems and their applications, quantum and classical noise sources in optical fibers and applications of nonlinear optics to quantum information science. Supplemented by endofchapter exercises and detailed examples of calculation techniques in different systems, this book is a valuable resource for graduate students and researchers in nonlinear optics, condensed matter physics, quantum information and atomic physics. A solid foundation in quantum mechanics and classical electrodynamics is assumed, but no prior knowledge of nonlinear optics is required.

Title  Feynman diagram techniques in condensed matter physics 
Author(s)  Radi A. Jishi 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013. 
Description  xiv, 400p. 
Abstract Note  A concise introduction to Feynman diagram techniques, this book shows how they can be applied to the analysis of complex manyparticle systems, and offers a review of the essential elements of quantum mechanics, solid state physics and statistical mechanics. Alongside a detailed account of the method of second quantization, the book covers topics such as Green's and correlation functions, diagrammatic techniques and superconductivity, and contains several case studies. Some background knowledge in quantum mechanics, solid state physics and mathematical methods of physics is assumed. Detailed derivations of formulas and indepth examples and chapter exercises from various areas of condensed matter physics make this a valuable resource for both researchers and advanced undergraduate students in condensed matter theory, manybody physics and electrical engineering.

Title  Nonequilibrium quantum field theory 
Author(s)  Esteban A. Calzetta;BeiLok B. Hu 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2009. 
Description  xv, 353p. 
Abstract Note  Bringing together the key ideas from nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and powerful methodology from quantum field theory, this book captures the essence of nonequilibrium quantum field theory. Beginning with the foundational aspects of the theory, the book presents important concepts and useful techniques, discusses issues of basic interest, and shows how thermal field, linear response, kinetic theories and hydrodynamics emerge. It also illustrates how these concepts and methodology are applied to current research topics including nonequilibrium phase transitions, thermalization in relativistic heavy ion collisions, the nonequilibrium dynamics of BoseEinstein condensation, and the generation of structures from quantum fluctuations in the early Universe. Divided into five parts, with each part addressing a particular stage in the conceptual and technical development of the subject, this selfcontained book is a valuable reference for graduate students and researchers in particle physics, gravitation, cosmology, atomicoptical and condensed matter physics.
