Introduction to
Many-body quantum theory incondensed matter physics
Henrik Bruus and Karsten Flensberg
Ørsted Laboratory, Niels Bohr Institute, University of CopenhagenMikroelektronik Centret, Technical University of DenmarkCopenhagen, 15 August 2002
Preface for the 2001 edition
This introduction to quantum field theory in condensed matter physics has emerged fromour 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 havegone through the pain of writing these notes, because we felt the pedagogical need fora book which aimed at putting an emphasis on the physical contents and applicationsof the rather involved mathematical machinery of quantum field theory without loosingmathematical rigor. We hope we have succeeded at least to some extend in reaching thisgoal.We would like to thank the students who put up with the first versions of this book andfor their enumerable and valuable comments and suggestions. We are particularly gratefulto the students of 
Many-particle Physics I & II 
, the academic year 2000-2001, and to NielsAsger Mortensen and Brian Møller Andersen for careful proof reading. Naturally, we aresolely 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 Rømer Grant No. 9600548.Ørsted Laboratory, Niels Bohr Institute Karsten Flensberg1 September, 2001 Henrik Bruus
Preface for the 2002 edition
After running the course in the academic year 2001-2002 our students came up with morecorrections and comments so that we felt a new edition was appropriate. We would liketo thank our ever enthusiastic students for their valuable help in improving this book.Karsten Flensberg Henrik BruusØrsted Laboratory Mikroelektronik CentretNiels Bohr Institute Technical University of Denmarkiii
