This volume provides a general field-theoretical picture of critical phenomena and stochastic dynamics and helps readers develop a practical skill for calculations. This education on the practical skill sets this book apart: it is the first to give a full technical introduction to the field. Both general ideas and ...hard... calculations are presented here. This text can also serve as an ideal reference on applications of Quantum Field Theory (QFT). The author gives a comprehensive treatment of the subject, but in a manner easily understood by anyone familiar with the basic of statistical physics. Both students and working scientists can benefit from this text.
