This textbook; Theoretical Physics 9: Fundamentals of Many-body Physics (2nd Edition); PDF; addresses the special physics of many-particle systems; especially those dominated by correlation effects. It develops modern methods to treat such systems and demonstrates their application through numerous appropriate exercises; mainly from the field of solid state physics. The book is written in a tutorial style appropriate for those who want to learn many-body theory and eventually to use this to do research work in this field. The exercises; together with full solutions for evaluating one’s performance; help to deepen understanding of the main aspects of many-particle systems.

This revised second edition presents new sections on the finite-temperature Matsubara formalism; in particular with respect to Dyson equation; the Hartree-Fock approximation; second order perturbation theory; Hubbard model; quasi particles; Jellium model; spin density waves; Fermi liquids and multi particle Matsubara functions.

Completing the outstanding Theoretical Physics series; this book will be a valuable resource for advanced students and researchers alike.
