This 2007 textbook presents quantum field theoretical applications to systems out of equilibrium, using both the mathematical canonical way of studying non-equilibrium states, and Feynman diagrams. Complete with numerous exercises for self-study, this textbook is suitable for graduate students in statistical mechanics and condensed matter physics.
