From Random Walks to Random Matrices

Jean Zinn-Justin

Abstract

Theoretical physics is a cornerstone of modern physics and provides a foundation for all modern quantitative science. It aims to describe all natural phenomena using mathematical theories and models and, in consequence, develops our understanding of the fundamental nature of the universe. This book offers an overview of major areas covering the recent developments in modern theoretical physics. Each chapter introduces a new key topic, and develops the discussion in a self-contained manner. At the same time, the selected topics have common themes running throughout the book, which connect the i ... More

Keywords: theoretical physics, renormalization group, universality, continuum limit, fixed point, path integral, field integral, effective field theory, gauge theory, anomaly
