Green 's Functions in Quantum Physics (Third Edition)
written by
Eleftherios N. Economou .
The new edition of a standard reference will be of interest to advanced students wishing to become familiar with
the method of Green's functions for obtaining simple and general solutions to basic problems in quantum physics.
The main part is devoted to the simplest kind of Green's functions, namely the solutions of linear differential
equations with a -function source. It is shown that these familiar Green's functions are a powerful tool for
obtaining relatively simple and general solutions of basic problems such as scattering and boundlevel
information. The bound-level treatment gives a clear physical understanding of "difficult" questions such as
superconductivity, the Kondo effect, and, to a lesser degree, disorder-induced localization. The more advanced
subject of many-body Green's functions is presented in the last part of the book. This third edition is 50%
longer than the previou and offers end-of-chapter problems and solutions (40% are solved) and additional
appendices to helpit is to serve as an effective self-tutorial and self-sufficient reference. Throughout, it
demonstrates the powerful and unifying formalism of Green's functions across many applications, including
transport properties, carbon nanotubes, and photonics and photonic crystals.
