Supersymmetry in disorder and chaos. (English) Zbl 0990.82501
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. xiv, 441 p. (1997).
Publisher’s description: The development of the supersymmetry technique has led to significant advances in the study of disordered metals and semiconductors. The technique has proved to be of great use in the analysis of modern mesoscopic quantum devices, but is also finding applications in a broad range of other topics, such as localization and quantum chaos. This book provides the first comprehensive treatment of the ideas and uses of supersymmetry. It will be of great interest to graduate students and researchers in condensed matter physics and quantum chaos.
