Luttinger Model: The First 50 Years And Some New Directions PDF
The Luttinger Model is the only model of many-fermion physics with legitimate claims to be both exactly and completely solvable. In several respects it plays the same role in many-body theory as does the 2D Ising model in statistical physics.
Interest in the Luttinger model has increased steadily ever since its introduction half a century ago. The present volume starts with reprints of the seminal papers in which it was originally introduced and solved, and continues with several contributions setting out the landscape of the principal advances of the last fifty years and of prominent new directions.
Readership: Physicists and theoretical chemists in condensed matter and/or nuclear-matter physics and graduate students in these fields, mathematical physicists working in the many-body problem, experimentalists in low-dimensional phenomena.
