Statistical Physics of Fields by Mehran Kardar

By Mehran Kardar

whereas many scientists are acquainted with fractals, fewer are conversant in scale-invariance and universality which underlie the ubiquity in their shapes. those houses could emerge from the collective behaviour of straightforward basic parts, and are studied utilizing statistical box theories. preliminary chapters attach the particulate point of view built within the better half quantity, to the coarse grained statistical fields studied right here. according to lectures taught through Professor Kardar at MIT, this textbook demonstrates how such theories are formulated and studied. Perturbation thought, particular strategies, renormalization teams, and different instruments are hired to illustrate the emergence of scale invariance and universality, and the non-equilibrium dynamics of interfaces and directed paths in random media are mentioned. excellent for complicated graduate classes in statistical physics, it includes an built-in set of difficulties, with suggestions to chose difficulties on the finish of the booklet and a whole set to be had to academics at www.cambridge.org/9780521873413.

Whereas many scientists are accustomed to fractals, fewer are conversant in scale-invariance and universality which underlie the ubiquity in their shapes. those houses may well emerge from the collective behaviour of easy basic ingredients, and are studied utilizing statistical box theories. preliminary chapters attach the particulate point of view built within the spouse quantity, to the coarse grained statistical fields studied right here.

Theoretical Concepts in Physics: An Alternative View of Theoretical Reasoning in Physics

A hugely unique, and really novel, method of theoretical reasoning in physics. This e-book illuminates the topic from the viewpoint of actual physics as practised via examine scientists. it's meant to be a complement to the ultimate years of an undergraduate direction in physics and assumes that the reader has a few clutch of collage physics.

Traffic and Random Processes: An Introduction

This e-book bargains in a simple and systematic demeanour with the basics of random functionality conception and appears at a few elements relating to arrival, automobile headway and operational pace strategies whilst. The paintings serves as an invaluable functional and academic software and goals at offering stimulus and motivation to enquire problems with one of these robust applicative curiosity.
