*About this edition:*The main goal of this work is to familiarize the reader with a tool, the path integral, that offers an alternative point of view on quantum mechanics, but more important, under a generalized form, has become the key to a deeper understanding of quantum field theory and its applications, which extend from particle physics to phase transitions or properties of quantum gases.Product Description: One of the greatest challenges that theoretical physics faces at the end of the century is to blend together the two revolutions of the beginning of the century, namely general relativity and quantum mechanics. One message that has become clear from the start and is common to both revolutions is that there is no limit to the level of sophistication of mathematics that will become essential to physics...read more

Renewal of interest in these domains belonging to classical physicochemistry appeared rather recently. This was motivated by the industrial importance of phenomena such as wetting of solids by liquids, interactions between colloidal particles, anchoring of liquid crystals, stabilization of liquid/liquid interfaces by amphiphilic molecules, and kinetics of foam...read more
