Description

In a systematic presentation, "Path Integrals and Quantum Processes" covers all concepts necessary to understand the path integral approach to calculating transition elements, partition functions and source functionals. The book, which assumes only a familiarity with quantum mechanics, will be useful as a supplementary textbook in quantum mechanics and quantum field theory courses. Graduate and post-graduate students who are unfamiliar with the path integral will also benefit from this contemporary text. Exercise sets are interspersed throughout the text to faciliate self-study.
