Editorial Reviews


"... a lively pedagogical exposition of the Keldysh technique based on functional integration. At the start, the author uses the simplest possible system - a harmonic oscillator - to provide a detailed description of the method... a welcome introduction to the field and could well become a classic."
Vojkan Jaksic, McGill University for Physics Today

Book Description

A self-contained presentation of the modern functional approach to non-equilibrium field-theoretical methods, this book gives a step-by-step treatment of the subject, with particular emphasis to the pedagogical aspects. It is an ideal reference for advanced graduate students and researchers in condensed matter physics.

Format: Hardcover
This is a shining example of how a pedagogical textbook on a relatively unexplored topic should be written. Although trained in the Russian school of physics, known for its elegantly terse writing which often stops just short of cryptic, Kamenev conveys exactly enough detail for a diligent reader to be able to reconstruct the elaborate Keldysh formalism. The textbook was a pleasure to read, and has immensely benefited my research.
