This book is an introduction to Statistical Field Theory, an important subject of theoretical physics that has undergone formidable progress in recent years. It offers readers a thorough introduction to the fascinating world of phase transitions as well as many related topics, including random walks, combinatorial problems, quantum field theory and S-matrix. This self-contained book also provides an excellent presentation of frontier topics of exactly solved models in statistical mechanics and quantum field theory, such as renormalization group, conformal models, boundary field theory, quantum integrable systems, duality, elastic S-matrix, thermodynamics Bethe ansatz, and form factor theory.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, paying attention to an overall coherent understanding of physical phenomena. Mathematical background is provided in supplements at the end of each chapter, when appropriate. The chapters are also followed by problems of different levels of difficulty. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students will find a rich and challenging source for improving their skills and for accomplishing a comprehensive learning of the many facets of the subject.
