    Collected Works
    Volume: 81998; 729 pp
    MSC: Primary 00; 15; 16; 34; 41; 47; 80;

    This book contains Thirring's scientific contributions to mathematical physics, statistical physics, general relativity, quantum field theory and elementary particle theory from 1950 onward. The order of the papers within the various sections is chronological and reflects the development of the fields during the second half of this century. In some cases, Thirring returned to problems decades later when the tools for their solution had ripened. Each section contains introductory comments by Thirring, outlining his motivation for the work at that time.

    Features:

    • A complete proof of the divergence of the renormalized perturbation theory in a relativistic quantum field theory and a proof of the divergence of a similar theory
    • A proof of the stability of matter
    • An analysis of a dynamical system with negative specific heat
    • A generalization of the dynamical entropy to quantum dynamical systems
    Readership

    Graduate students, mathematicians, physicists and science historians.

    • This is a selected collection (51 out of 156) of journal articles of Walter E. Thirring who has made deep contributions in an almost unbelievably broad field joining mathematics and physics. A pleasant feature of this collected work is the commentary for each article by the author himself, placed at the beginning of each chapter ... The Foreword by Elliott Lieb gives a cohesive picture of extensive works of Thirring and their significance in mathematics and physics.
