The physics of non-equilibrium many-body systems is one of the most rapidly expanding areas of theoretical physics. Traditionally used in the study of laser physics and superconducting kinetics, these techniques have more recently found applications in the study of dynamics of cold atomic gases, mesoscopic and nano-mechanical systems. The book gives a self-contained presentation of the modern functional approach to non-equilibrium field-theoretical methods. They are applied to examples ranging from biophysics to the kinetics of superfluids and superconductors. Its step-by-step treatment gives particular emphasis to the pedagogical aspects, making it ideal as a reference for advanced graduate students and researchers in condensed matter physics. Alex Kamenev is a Professor of Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics at the William I. Fine Theoretical Physics Institute (FTPI) and in the Department of Physics, University of Minnesota. Since gaining his Ph.D. at the Weizmann Institute of Science in 1996, he has held a postdoctoral position at the University of California at Santa Barbara and an Assistant Professorship at the Israel Institute of Technology (Technion). His main areas of research include mesoscopic physics, low-dimensional and correlated fermionic and bosonic models as well as stochastic systems and population dynamics.
