Introduction to
Many-body quantum theory in
condensed matter physics

Copenhagen, 15 August 2002
Preface for the 2001 edition

This introduction to quantum \ufb01eld theory in condensed matter physics has emerged from our courses for graduate and advanced undergraduate students at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, held between the fall of 1999 and the spring of 2001. We have gone through the pain of writing these notes, because we felt the pedagogical need for a book which aimed at putting an emphasis on the physical contents and applications of the rather involved mathematical machinery of quantum \ufb01eld theory without loosing mathematical rigor. We hope we have succeeded at least to some extend in reaching this goal.

We would like to thank the students who put up with the \ufb01rst versions of this book and for their enumerable and valuable comments and suggestions. We are particularly grateful to the students ofMany-particle Physics I & II, the academic year 2000-2001, and to Niels Asger Mortensen and Brian M\u00f8ller Andersen for careful proof reading. Naturally, we are solely responsible for the hopefully few remaining errors and typos.

During the work on this book H.B. was supported by the Danish Natural Science Re-
search Council through Ole R\u00f8mer Grant No. 9600548.

Preface for the 2002 edition

After running the course in the academic year 2001-2002 our students came up with more corrections and comments so that we felt a new edition was appropriate. We would like to thank our ever enthusiastic students for their valuable help in improving this book.
