Introduction into the Many-Body Problem

(A Manual)

This manual is concerned with the delineation of the fundamentals of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of the interacting particles systems in the gas and liquid phases in terms of the present-day physics of condensed media. It also covers classical and quantum systems as well as the effects related to the non-linear fluctuations and a connection between the inter-particle potentials and structural characteristics of the disordered systems. The peculiarity of the book lies in the material being presented at a high level of rigorousness proceeding from the first principles, the knowledge of the general course of physics being just sufficient for its comprehension. This makes it invaluable for the study of essentials of the statistical theory of condensed media by those who are not yet well-versed in specific sections of statistical physics and quantum mechanics.

The manual is meant for students, postgraduates and young scientists.
