not yet rated|write a review
Proceedings of the July 1995 summer school which focused on the recent progress in quantum field theory in two dimensions, with a particular emphasis on integrable models and applications of quantum field theory to condensed matter physics. Eighteen contributions include lectures on the application of conformal field theory techniques to disordered systems, the computation of the three point function of the Liouville model using conformal bootstrap methods, and interesting developments in matrix model techniques, two dimensional quantum gravity and the Galogero-Sutherland model. The volume is dedicated to the late Claude Itzykson. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
