Statistical Field Theory
by H.T.C. Stoof
Publisher: Utrecht University 2002
Number of pages: 66
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.

Topics: The hydrodynamic limit and classical field theories; Phase transitions and broken symmetries: universality, correlation functions, and scaling theory; The renormalization approach to collective phenomena; Dynamic critical behavior; etc.
by Josiah Willard Gibbs - Charles Scribner's Sons
Written by J. Willard Gibbs, this book was the first to bring together and arrange in logical order the works of Clausius, Maxwell, Boltzmann, and Gibbs himself. The text remains a valuable collection of fundamental equations and principles.
