Condensed matter physics is the field of physics that deals with the macroscopic and microscopic physical properties of particular it is concerned with the "condensed" phases that appear whenever the number of constituents in a system is extremely large and the interactions between the constituents are strong. For a gentle introduction to Quantum Field theory (QFT), I would recommend the following: * Quantum Field Theory for the Gifted Amateur, by Lancaster and Blundell. This will teach you everything you need to know before going into QFT, provided tha. This book is an introduction to the techniques of many-body quantum theory with a large number of applications to condensed matter physics. The basic idea of the book is to provide a self-contained formulation of the theoretical framework without losing mathematical rigor, while at the same time providing physical motivation and examples/5(10).
