Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'The insight and depth of treatment which singles this book out from others in this field can be largely attributed to Weinberg's authority as an originator of many of the ideas in the book … Experienced researchers and beginning graduate students alike will delight in the gems of wisdom to be found in these pages. This book combines exposition of technical detail with physical insight in a unique manner that confirms the promise of Volume 1 and I have no doubt that these two volumes will rapidly constitute the classic treatment of this important subject.' Michael B. Green, CERN Courier

'… a clear presentation of the subject, explaining the underlying concepts in much depth and in an accessible style. I expect that these volumes will become the first source we turn to when trying to answer the challenging questions asked by bright postgraduates when they first encounter quantum field theory … I have no doubt that The Quantum Theory of Fields will soon be found on the bookshelves of most particle theorists, and that it will be one of the main sources used in the preparation of lectures on the subject for postgraduate students.' C. T. C. Sachrajda, The Times Higher Education Supplement

'This is not a book for the casual reader, nor for the faint-hearted. But the serious reader willing to put in the effort will find it an excellent book from which to learn. Weinberg never sacrifices clarity of understanding to elegance of presentation. Nor is he content to present the formal developments; he always adds specific calculations that show them in action and make them concrete … His two volumes will be a valued reference and a mine of useful information for professional field theorists.' Tom Kibble, New Scientist

'… an impressive work.' Jean Zinn-Justin, Physics World

'Weinberg's Modern Applications goes to the boundaries of our present understanding of field theory. It is unmatched by any other book on quantum field theory for its depth, generality and definitive character, and it will be an essential reference for serious students and researchers in elementary particle physics.' O. W. Greenberg, Physics Today

It is a majestic exposition … I find it hard to imagine a better treatment of quantum field theory than Weinberg's.' John C. Taylor, Nature

'… Steven Weinberg is one of our most gifted makers of theoretical tools as well as a virtuoso in their use. His new book conveys both the satisfaction of understanding nature and the feel of the atelier, for the 'modern applications' of its subtitle include both the derivation of physical consequences and the development of new tools for understanding and applying field theory itself … Modern Applications is a splendid book, with abundant useful references to the original literature. It is a very interesting read from cover to cover, for the wholeness Weinberg's personal perspective gives to quantum field theory and particle physics.' Chris Quigg, Science

' … Weinberg has produced a masterpiece that will be a standard reference on the field for a long time to come'. B. E. Y. Svensson, Elementa

Première phrase
The quantum field theories that have proved successful in describing the real world are all non-Abelian gauge theories, theories based on principles of gauge invariance more general than the simple U(1) gauge invariance of quantum electrodynamics. Lire la première page

Excellent, despite some idiosyncracies 21 janvier 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is another gem of a book by Weinberg. The discussion is fairly modern at places (for instance nice discussion of BRST, BV Formalism, RG and Anomalies), but could have been more modern and compact in certain other places (like chiral lagrangians, standard model etc.). However, even those parts are a pleasure to read. It is just that some other aspects could have been discussed (as I hope he does in the third volume), such as SUSY, especially QFT dualities. Anyway, an excellent book!

The most authoritative book on QFT ever 1 janvier 2006
Par Johnny Sack - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Before Weinberg's books, a typical graduate student in theoretical physics would study the standard textbooks (e.g. Itzykson-Zuber, Peskin-Schroeder) to pass QFT courses. When confronted with actual research problems, he would discover that all he has learned is how to do calculations in perturbation theory, that he is unfamiliar with a host of ideas and techniques that are widely used in the present-day research literature and that he has to resort to original papers and reviews to learn them.

Weinberg's three-volume set drastically changed this situation, giving the most authoritative and complete presentation of QFT to appear in a textbook. Although it is not suitable for beginning graduate students, it is invaluable for covering all these topics that are typically omitted in QFT courses and for providing valuable insight missing from other textbooks.

The highlight of the set is Volume 2, which includes most topics where Weinberg has made his own invaluable contributions. In his inimitable style, Weinberg guides us through the great developments in QFT from the 1960's to the 1980's, including most topics that are essential for a working knowledge of modern QFT. The presentation is crystal clear throughout and every topic is presented in as much detail as it deserves. In particular, the chapters on spontaneously broken symmetries are simply masterpieces, the treatment of anomalies is the most complete ever, while the chapter on extended objects is a thorough overview of an ever-expanding subject. This book is a must for everyone working on theoretical physics.

Delightfully insightful 22 décembre 2002
Par Muraari Vasudevan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book has some of the most exquisite expositions on the theoretical aspects of quantum field theory that you are ever likely to run into, i.e. Weinberg's name is literally stamped on every page for brilliance. There are topics treated here that are not likely to be found anywhere else, for instance Batalin-Vilkovisky Quantization. Weinberg's treatment of the proof of renormalizability is compact and yet very readable. And his chapter on anomalies is simply speaking the authortiative treatment. This book is a must have for anyone interested in the more theoretical aspects of Field Theory. Though I would recommed a few months with Peskin & Schroeder, and volume 1 of Weinberg to get the full flavour of Weinberg's treatment.

If you appreciate Vol 1, you'll want Vol 2. 25 mars 2005
Par Javier Reynaldo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I have found this text extremely useful as a guide to the essentials of modern renormalization theory, as well as modern quantization techniques for Non-abelian gauge theories. The chapter on extended field configurations is nice, though it is meant as an overview and guide to the literature. What I like most about this volume is the discussion of experimental or phenomenological issues that complements many of the discussions. He has a broad base of knowledge in particle physics, as well as field theory. If you don't have volume 1, get that first.
