The unavoidable mathematical concepts and tools are presented in as straightforward manner as possible. Even though the mathematics is not very difficult, it certainly is beneficial to know some statistical thermodynamics as well as some quantum mechanics. Thus the text is suitable for the upper undergraduate curriculum.
Christian Hoelbling studied physics at the university of Graz, Austria. He received his PhD from Boston University in 2002, with a thesis entitled "Monopoles, confinement and chiral symmetry in lattice gauge theory". After postdocs at DESY and the CNRS, Marseille, he joined the University of Wuppertal where he obtained his Habilitation in 2013 and is currently a senior researcher. His main research interest is in computational quantum field theory and its application towards the search of new physics.
