This outstanding book serves as both an introductory research work and a graduate text on condensed matter physics. It is also accessible to plasma physicists and their students. The emphasis is on applications to a variety of systems and phenomena rather than theoretical derivations andtechniques. Experimentalists who wish to obtain a feel for the theories involved in these systems will find careful explanations for many of the most active areas of work in physics today. The chapters are self-contained and can be read independently. In total, this text gives the beginningresearcher a solid foundation upon which to build his or her knowledge of this tremendously rich and growing field. It will be read with interest by graduate students and researchers in condensed matter and solid state physics, plasma physics, and many-body theory.
Akira Isihara is at State University of New York at Buffalo.

Editorial Reviews

"Based in the author's long experience in the theory of correlated systems, it ranges from simple liquids and electron correlations through magnetism, superconductivity, and superfluidity to liquid crystals and polymers. This is an appealing contents list. Interms of naming the theoreticalparts the book is thorough and indeed helpful." --Contemporary Physics
