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). Quantum Fabry-Perot text introduces the theoretical concepts and tools essential for graduate-level courses on the physics of materials in condensed matter physics, physical chemistry, materials science and engineering, and chemical engineering. 'This is a wonderful book clearly explaining essential concepts of the quantum theory of Cited by: 1.

Modern Condensed Matter Physics brings together the most important advances in the field of recent decades. It provides instructors teaching graduate-level condensed matter courses with a comprehensive and in-depth textbook that will prepare graduate students for research or further study as well as reading more advanced and specialized books and research literature in the by: @article{osti_, title = {Qualitative methods in quantum theory}, author = {Migdal, A B}, abstractNote = {The author feels that the solution of most problems in theoretical physics begins with the application of qualitative methods - dimensional estimates and estimates made from simple models, the investigation of limiting cases, the use of the analytic properties of physical quantities.
