Quantum Non-linear Sigma-Models: From Quantum Field Theory to Supersymmetry, Conformal Field Theory, Black Holes and Strings - Theoretical and Mathematical Physics (Paperback)Sergei V. Ketov (author)
- We can order this
This is the first comprehensive presentation of the quantum non-linear sigma-models. The original papers consider in detail geometrical properties and renormalization of a generic non-linear sigma-model, illustrated by explicit multi-loop calculations in perturbation theory.

"This is a very useful book describing many aspects and applications of nonlinear sigma-models. [...] One of the useful features of the book is that several chapters and sections can essentially be read independently, making this a practical reference book. However, the introductory chapters should also make it accessible to anyone with a basic knowledge of quantum field theory and supersymmetry." (Mathematical Reviews 2002b)
