Contents:

Summary: In this textbook of advanced quantum theory for graduate students and research workers, Professor Ziman again adopts the kind of approach used so successfully in Principles of the theory of solids. He gives a connected mathematical derivation of the important results, concentrating on the central ideas without burdening the exposition with elaborate detail or unnecessary rigour, and explains, in the simplest possible terms, the symbols and concepts which frequently confron the active research worker in solid state, nuclear, and high-energy physics, and in theoretical chemistry: field operators, propagators, graphs, Green functions, spinors, the S-matrix, irreducible representations, continuous groups and so on. Professor Ziman brings to his task the sympathetic personal guidance of a lecturer who has not forgotten the difficulties that he himself had to surmount in mastering his subject.
