  The book is an introduction to quantum field theory and renormalization group. It shows that these frameworks are essential for the understanding of phenomena belonging to many different areas of physics, which range from phase transitions in macroscopic systems to the theory of fundamental interactions/5(3). Zinn-Justin J., Quantum Field theory and Critical Phenomena. This is a very long and thorough book, which contains material that cannot easily be found elsewhere. I haven't read all of it, but I loved some of its chapters. His definition and characterisation of functional integrals, and his analysis of renormalisation and divergences are flawless. Within the first seven chapters, the authors derive the key results in euclidian field theory and lay the basis for further developments in renormalization theory and critical phenomena. That part of the book is almost self-contained and could serve as an alternative to the traditionally particle-physics oriented field theory by: The book is an introduction to quantum field theory and renormalization group. It shows that these frameworks are essential for the understanding of phenomena belonging to many different areas of physics, which range from phase transitions in macroscopic systems to the theory of fundamental interactions. This book emphasizes the common aspects of particle physics and Author: Jean Zinn-Justin.

  physics; a chapter on critical phenomena in non-magnetic systems, polymers, liquid-vapour, and helium superfluid transitions; and a chaper on finite temperature relativistic quantum field theory. The book can be roughly divided into four parts: chapters deal with general field theory, functional integrals, and functional methods/5(3).

Field theory has also been applied to a variety of phenomena in condensed matter physics, including superconductivity, superfluidity and the quantum Hall effect. The concept of the renormalization group has given us a new perspective on field theory in general and on critical phenomena in particular.
