About this book

The main part of this book is devoted to the simplest kind of Green's functions, namely the solutions of linear differential equations with a -function source. It is shown that these familiar Green's functions are a powerful tool for obtaining relatively simple and general solutions of basic problems such as scattering and bound-level information. The bound-level treatment gives a clear physical understanding of "difficult" questions such as superconductivity, the Kondo effect, and, to a lesser degree, disorder-induced localization. The more advanced subject of many-body Green's functions is presented in the last part of the book.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"The main purpose of this book is to provide graduate students, and also experienced researchers, with a clear and quite detailed survey of the applications of Green’s functions in different modern fields of quantum physics. … In summary, this book is a good manual for people who want to understand the physics and the various applications of Green’s functions in modern fields of physics. It can also be used as a starting point for studying numerical analysis in condensed matter theory." (Jean-Yves-Fortin, Mathematical Reviews, Issue, 2007 i)
