Mehran Kardar
Field theory (Physics)
Cambridge
"Covering the more advanced applications of statistical mechanics, this textbook is ideal for advanced graduate students in physics. It is based on lectures for a course in statistical physics taught by Professor Kardar at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The large number of integrated problems introduce the reader to novel applications such as percolation and roughening. The selected solutions at the end of the book are ideal for self-study and honing calculation methods."--p. 4 of cover.
