serious phenomena is likely one of the most enjoyable components of contemporary physics. This 2007 booklet offers an intensive yet monetary advent into the foundations and methods of the speculation of severe phenomena and the renormalization crew, from the viewpoint of contemporary condensed topic physics. Assuming easy wisdom of quantum and statistical mechanics, the publication discusses section transitions in magnets, superfluids, superconductors, and gauge box theories. specific cognizance is given to themes akin 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 examine. This publication comprises a variety of difficulties of various levels of trouble, with suggestions. those difficulties supply 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 subject physics, statistical physics, and many-body physics.
