• Many-body systems of identical particles
• Single-particle Green’s functions: properties and physical meaning
• Two-particle Green’s functions
• Adiabatic perturbations
• Feynman diagrams
• Wick’s theorem
• The random-phase approximation and the GW approximation
• The Bethe-Salpeter equation
This course is aimed to provide an overview of the advanced methods of quantum mechanics for the study of many-particle problems in condensed-matter physics. The formalism of the single-particle and two-particle Green’s functions will be introduced and their connections with state-of-the-art numerical methods for electronic-structure theory will be disclosed. The course is primarily aimed to graduate students with a study and/or research profile in theoretical physics. However, the participation of graduate students and young researchers with an experimental background is equally welcome. Solid knowledge of quantum mechanics is a must to attend this course. Familiarity with theoretical solid-state physics and with the electronic-structure theory methods is a plus.
The course is part of admission "Anmeldung gesperrt (global)".
