Title: Many-body problem

Abstract

An introduction is given to techniques used in the many-body problem, and a reference book is given for those techniques. Sevcral different formulations of the techniques, and their interrelations, are discussed, to prepare the reader for the published literature. Examples are taken mostly from the physics of solids, fluids and plasmas. Second quantization, perturbation theory, Green functions and correlation functions, examples in the use of diagrammatic perturbation theory, the equation of motion method, magnetism (the drone-fermion representation), linear response and transport processes, niany- body systems at zero temperature, the variational principle and pair-wave approximation.
