Serious phenomena is without doubt one of the most fun parts of contemporary physics. This 2007 e-book offers a radical yet fiscal creation into the foundations and methods of the speculation of serious phenomena and the renormalization team, from the point of view of contemporary condensed subject physics. Assuming uncomplicated wisdom of quantum and statistical mechanics, the e-book discusses section transitions in magnets, superfluids, superconductors, and gauge box theories. specific recognition is given to themes equivalent to gauge box fluctuations in superconductors, the Kosterlitz-Thouless transition, duality modifications, and quantum section transitions - all of that are on the leading edge of physics study. This ebook includes various difficulties of various levels of hassle, with recommendations. those difficulties offer readers with a wealth of fabric to check their knowing of the topic. it's perfect for graduate scholars and more matured researchers within the fields of condensed topic physics, statistical physics, and many-body physics.
