Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Kaku rolls up his sleeves and gets down to work .. whisking us right throught to inflation and superstrings... provides a comprehensive selection of exercises at the end of every chapter. New Scientist --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Présentation de l'éditeur

Quantum Field Theory: A Modern Introduction is undoubtedly the standard setting textbook in this field; as it is the only up-to-date introductory textbook to cover the `modern' approach to quantum field theory (QFT). In this textbook, Michio Kaku, goes far beyond existing texts, and presents material vital to the modern approach to QFT. Topics such as critical phenomena, lattice gauge theory, supersymmetry, quantum gravity, supergravity, and superstrings are all included in this textbook and are not included in other textbooks on QFT. There are also over 260 exercises included within the text. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Format: Relié
Issu d'un des théoriciens des supercordes,le livre de Michio Kaku est exactement ce qu'il prétend être.Il donne l'ossature et les concepts centraux des théories actuelles sur les champs de forces et de matière et ce,de l'électrodynamique quantique à la théorie des supercordes.
Ce livre est écrit avec un jugement et une sensibilité extraordinaire et semble éviter les écueils de bon nombre de livres sur la théorie des champs.Le lecteur n'y trouvera que ce qu'il a véritablement besoin de savoir mais de façon complète.
Pour le chercheur débutant, les livres sur le sujet sont en général des traités pour chercheurs avancés ou préparent seulement à faire des calculs dans le modèle standard des particules élémentaires,sans donner les ressorts exacts et une vision globale des théories actuelles.
A la lecture de ce livre,écrit à partir des cours donnés par l'auteur sur une année,on n'est jamais submergé par une avalanche de calculs ou de détails inutiles pour le débutant.On ne se sent pas non plus frusté par un manque de justifications dans l'introduction des idées ,le développement des concepts ou la complétude d'une vision organique de la connaissance.
Rien ne manque dans cet ouvrage en trois parties.
La première traite de la théorie quantique des champs et de l'électrodynamique telle qu'elle apparaît ,en gros, à la fin des années 60:matrice S,diagrammes de Feynman et renormalisation.C'est une forme condensée du fameux Bjorken et Drell.

A fairly good book, but not suitable for an introduction 30 juin 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a good book. The nicest thing is how it handles renormalisation, a very complete approach. However, it have severe defects in mathematics. For example, its proof of Noether theorem is wrong. It is too sketchy with group theory, although it at first sight looks like an introduction. Only someone very well versed with group theory and representation can understand this chapter. Unfortunately, this is the mark of a rather sloppy mathematics writer, as further reading confirms. The comparison with Weinberg's precision and rigor is striking. I would recommend it however to someone wishing a clear introduction to renormalisation and the standard model, but with previous knowledge of QFT. I think the term "introduction" in the title is a bit misleading.

It could have been wonderful if... 1 février 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
The scope of the book is very wide, it covers many topics (even quite advanced ones) not to be found in similar books. The problem is the large number of mathematical errors and typos, and its dishomogeneity: while some topics are well covered from basics up, others really require much advance knowledge.

Excellent reference book but annoying for a biginner 27 février 2003
Par Maurice Tremblay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The Good: Nearly all the major subjects are covered in some detail - that is the key developments and insights. This includes all the major details of QED, Gauge Theory and Electroweak Theory, and finally the Standard Model. I loved the reviews on GUT, Quantum Gravity and Superstrings and a few bonus section/chapters like Solitons and Latice theories. Another good thing is the space given in the book - being a notes person, there is plenty of room to work out details and write notes beween equations and at the bottom of the page. Teh appendices contain all the necessary formulas for trace calculations but when it comes to QFT, appendices SHOULD also contain the Feynman rules for the various theories and/or interactions.
The Bad: The author has an unpleasant habbit of plugging and sticking formulas and equations here and there within developments thinking we remember exactly where it was discussed beforehand. Sorry but it becomes painfully annoying at times to understand the material presented in detail when you keep being distracted by finding the formulas 4 chapters before. If ever their is a second edition, I think many would realy like it to include more of the "Using eq. (3.113) and the normalization condition (3.etc.) we get..." more often such that we could worry less about finding which formula/equation (and where they are!) as opposed to working out the developments for ourselves - unless it is recommended as an exercice. For those that love developments and the origin of equations, Lahiri and Pal is much better. And why do textbooks of this caliber DO NOT contain worked out excercises or answers? I have done some of the exercises BUT what is the point of doing more of them if I do not know if I have the right answer! I guess I would more fully understand the material better IF I had a result like I have in the text. Learning QFT is also allowing the student to develop tool to calculate - hence worked out problems help in that endeavor.
The Ugly: I've seen better Dirac equation formulations and Wick's theorem developements (and application to second order interactions in phi4) is awful compared to other texts and not as straightforward as suggested.
In all, excellent reference book for the intermediate learner or expert that wants to avoid working out details and wants more the results and interpretation but for a student or someone who seeks to make calculations and basic research later on, Peskin and Schroeder is a better choice.

extensive problem sets are useful 12 août 2006
Par W Boudville - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Several of the other reviewers may be correct, about the quality of the text, and the developments of some of its arguments. It does however go beyond such earlier standard texts, like Sakurai's "Advanced Quantum Mechanics", which was just an introductory treatment of relativistic quantum mechanics. Kaku takes you well into the depths of QCD and the [current] Standard Model.

If you are a grad student wanting expertise in this field, an attraction of the book is its extensive problem sets for each chapter. Perhaps more so than the textual exposition! Another reviewer bemoaned the lack of worked out problems or answers. Well, that lack is the norm for many advanced texts. You just have to get used to it. But a more positive way to look at this is to recognise that sometimes knowing that an answer to a problem exists can be valuable in itself.

Expectations unrewarded 8 mars 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
My background is a Ph.D. (1963) in physics. My dissertation was based on the Mössbauer Effect, and my brief career in research was in areas of electron transport physics. I never had a strong background in high energy physics, and my quantum field theory exposure was mainly QED.
Now that I am retired, I read some physics and looked to Prof. Kaku's book for a survey of current QFT and an introduction to string theory. I have just finished reading Chapter 2, which the Preface states may be skipped by the student who "already understands the basics of group theory . . . or who does not want to delve that deeply into the intricacies of quantum field theory." I certainly did not place myself in that class of student and decided to delve.
The presentation of Chapter 2 leads to the "essential point" (p58) that the Lorentz and Poincaré groups are at the heart of quantum field theory, and "the results of this chapter will be used throughout the book". For that reason, the results should have been developed with great clarity, and I cannot say I found that true.
For example, equations 2.104 which state the Poincaré algebra, as described as showing that translations transform as a vector under the Lorentz group. But the transformation of a vector is defined by eq. 2.91. No connection is anywhere demonsrated between eq. 2.91 and 2.104; nor elsewhere between commutation relations and the transformation of vector fields.
In the discussion of the Casimir operator, the Pauli-Lubanski tensor (p.55), the evaluation in the rest-frame of the space part of the vector (tensor) based on eq. 2.106 leads to "the rotation matrix in three dimensions." But eq. 2.106 is an operator equation, whereas the result (eq. 2.108) is a matrix equation. What is the connection?
I shall plow on with the text in the hope that it will become clearer as I proceed. My feeling at this point is frustration, because I cannot tell for whom this book was written.
