Giuseppe Mussardo is Full Professor of Theoretical Physics at SISSA (Trieste). He is the founder of the Statistical Physics Group at SISSA, and the chair of several international grants on quantum and statistical systems. He serves as the Scientific Director of the Journal of Statistical Mechanics and Applications (JSTAT). He is a member of the International Institute of Physics in Natal and former Director of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Natural Sciences in SISSA. In 2017, he was the Kramers Chair at the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Utrecht. He was awarded the Prize of the Societa' Italiana di Fisica for Science Dissemination in 2013.


This textbook provides a thorough introduction to phase transitions and exactly solved models in statistical physics and quantum field theory. It covers a broad area from basic concepts of statistical physics and quantum mechanics to latest developments in low dimensional quantum field theories, phase transitions and non-perturbative analysis.

Fundamental concepts of phase transitions, such as order parameters, spontaneous symmetry breaking, scaling transformations, conformal symmetry and anomalous dimensions, have deeply changed the modern vision of many areas of physics, leading to remarkable developments in statistical mechanics, elementary particle theory, condensed matter physics and string theory. This self-contained book provides a thorough introduction to the fascinating world of phase transitions and frontier topics of exactly solved models in statistical mechanics and quantum field theory, such as renormalization groups, conformal models, quantum integrable systems, duality, elastic S-matrices, thermodynamic Bethe ansatz and form factor theory. The clear discussion of physical principles is accompanied by a detailed analysis of several branches of mathematics distinguished for their elegance and beauty, including infinite dimensional algebras, conformal mappings, integral equations and modular functions. Besides advanced research themes, the book also covers many basic topics in statistical mechanics, quantum field theory and theoretical physics. Each argument is discussed in great detail while providing overall coherent understanding of physical phenomena. Mathematical background is made available in supplements at the end of each chapter, when appropriate. The chapters include problems of different levels of difficulty. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students will find this book a rich and challenging source for improving their skills and for attaining a comprehensive understanding of the many facets of the subject.
