Kleinert's book presents the reader with a very complete and very thorough discussion of path integration... -- Journal of Statistical Physics, Apr 2003

About the Author

Hagen Kleinert is Professor of Physics at the Freie Universität Berlin, Germany. As a visiting scientist, he has spent extended periods of time at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva; at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena; at the Universities of California in Berkeley, Santa Barbara, and San Diego; at the Los Alamos National Laboratories in New Mexico; and at Princeton University, New Jersey. He has made numerous contributions to our understanding of particle physics, mathematical physics, condensed matter physics, chemical physics, and nuclear physics. His two-volume book Gauge Fields in Condensed Matter, published by World Scientific, develops a new quantum field-theory of phase transitions on the basis of disorder fields. Such fields have since become a powerful tool to investigate the statistical properties of fluctuating line-like excitations in various many-body systems such as superfluids, superconductors, and crystals.

Format: Paperback
Kleinerts book "Path Integrals in Quantum Mechanics, Statistics, and Polymer Physics" presents the reader with a very complete and very thorough discussion of path integration. The book offers such a wealth of topics,it becomes straightforward to select material, both for advanced undergraduate as well as graduate courses in theoretical physics.
Many, many issues dealt with in this volume have appeared here for the first time, such as the inclucion of the quantum mechanics of the hydrogen atom through path integrals. This book is a major step towards bringing this approach to quantum physics onto the same educational footing as the Schrödinger equation that standard texts focus on. This book profits from the clarity and conciseness that is also a hallmark of Kleinerts scientific papers.
I would say this volume is highly recommendable for any student considering to major in {theoretical} physics, and an absolute must for any lecturer in this area. Infact, I don't know of any excuse not to have your own copy.

Kleinert the physicist is NOTHING short of phenomenal. This book is just one of his many treatises. After reading Feynman(+Hibbs) this is the text to follow up.

Sadly the second edition which is in print contain MANY typos.

The third edition fixes much if not all, so skip right onto the 3rd or higher edition.

So a little background on Kleinert: feynman could NOT solve the schrodinger equation with the path integral and kleinert, using some group theoretical methods did. or so that's what i was told.
His book reflects that. This book is full of interesting facts that arent elsewhere.
