FINITE TEMPERATURE FIELD THEORY. This course will develop a working knowledge of finite temperature many body theory. Topics include basic quantum theory of many body systems, correlation functions and Green's function technology; imaginary time formalism, diagrammatic methodology, elementary approximations, paired fermionic and superfluid bosonic systems, and non-equilibrium techniques. Meets only during the second half of the semester.
