%TBosonization: How to make it work for you in condensed matter
%XAn elementary introduction to Abelian bosonization is provided here. It is shown that although it is applicable to relativistic Dirac fermions, there are many examples of problems in condensed matter theory which are described (with respect to some characteristics) by just such objects. Examples considered here are the uniform and random bond Ising models, and the Hubbard model. (author). 23 refs.
