5 out of 5 stars One of The only TWO Books to own on PI's, March 9, 2001

Reviewer: Tim Hatamian from New York, NY USA

Kleinert the physicist is NOTHING short of phenomenal. This book is just one of his many treatises. After reading Feynman(+Hibbs) this is the text to follow up. . . .

 

5 out of 5 stars Kleinerts Completeness, June 26, 2000

Reviewer: Frank Witte from Utrecht, Netherlands

Kleinerts book "Path Integrals in Quantum Mechanics, Statistics, and Polymer Physics" presents the reader with a very complete and very thorough discussion of path integration. The book offers such a wealth of topics,it becomes straightforward to select material, both for advanced undergraduate as well as graduate courses in theoretical physics.

Many, many issues dealt with in this volume have appeared here for the first time, such as the inclucion of the quantum mechanics of the hydrogen atom through path integrals. This book is a major step towards bringing this approach to quantum physics onto the same educational footing as the Schrvdinger equation that standard texts focus on. This book profits from the clarity and conciseness that is also a hallmark of Kleinerts scientific papers.

I would say this volume is highly recommendable for any student considering to major in {theoretical} physics, and an absolute must for any lecturer in this area. Infact, I don't know of any excuse not to have your own copy.
