Functional Integrals in Many-Body Theory

 

Lecture details

The lecture will be given by Professor Meden.

Topics:

  • Brownian motion and Wiener functional integral
  • Feynman path integral
  • Gaussian integrals and perturbation theory
  • Path integrals in imaginary time
  • Coherent state functional integrals
  • The functional renormalization group

The student acquires the knowledge how to employ functional integrals to solve problems in statistical mechanics, single-particle quantum mechanics and many-body quantum mechanics.
