Summary
"Bringing together the key ideas from nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and powerful methodology from quantum field theory, this book captures the essence of nonequilibrium quantum field theory." "Beginning with the foundational aspects of the theory, the book presents important concepts and useful techniques, discusses issues of basic interest such as decoherence and entropy generation, and shows how thermal field, linear response, kinetic theories, and hydrodynamics emerge. It also illustrates how these concepts and methodology are applied to current research topics such as nonequilibrium phase transitions, thermalization in relativistic heavy ion collisions, the nonequilibrium dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensation, and the generation of structures from quantum fluctuations in the early Universe."--BOOK JACKET
