Physics | Quantum Many-Body Theory II
P626 | 3253 | Serot

Instructor: Brian Serot (
Brief description: We will cover chapters 7 through 9
in the text: Quantum Theory of Many-Particle Systems,
by A. L. Fetter and J. D. Walecka (McGraw-Hill, 1971).
We will also study the time-path (Schwinger-Keldysh)
formalism for finite-temperature systems in equilibrium.
Finally, path-integral methods will be introduced.

The course grade will be based on homework assignments
due roughly every week.  There will be no midterm or final
