Nonequilibrium Many-Body Theory of Quantum Systems: A Modern Introduction

Nonequilibrium Many-Body Theory of Quantum Systems: A Modern Introduction

Gianluca Stefanucci


The Green's functionality process is likely one of the strongest and flexible formalisms in physics, and its nonequilibrium model has proved beneficial in lots of study fields. This e-book offers a special, self-contained creation to nonequilibrium many-body idea. beginning with easy quantum mechanics, the authors introduce the equilibrium and nonequilibrium Green's functionality formalisms inside a unified framework referred to as the contour formalism. The actual content material of the contour Green's capabilities and the diagrammatic expansions are defined with a spotlight at the time-dependent point. each result's derived step by step, significantly mentioned after which utilized to assorted actual platforms, starting from molecules and nanostructures to metals and insulators. With an abundance of illustrative examples, this obtainable e-book is perfect for graduate scholars and researchers who're attracted to excited nation homes of subject and nonequilibrium physics.
