"Quantum Mechanics - Special Chapters is an important additional course for third-year students. Starting with the quantization of a free electromagnetic field and its interaction with matter, it discusses second quantization and interacting quantum fields. After a sketch of renormalization problems and a general treatment of nonrelativistic quantum field theory, these methods are applied to problems from solid-state physics and plasma physics: the quantum gas, superfluidity, plasmons, and photons. The book concludes with an introduction to quantum statistics, the structure of atoms and molecules, and the basic ideas behind quantum mechanics as formulated by Feynman path integrals. 75 carefully and fully worked examples and problems consolidate the material."--Jacket.
