Giuseppe Mussardo, Full Professor in Theoretical Physics, Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA), Trieste- Italy
Giuseppe Mussardo is Full Professor of Theoretical Physics at SISSA (Trieste). He is the founder of the Statistical Physics Group at SISSA, and the chair of several international grants on quantum and statistical systems. He serves as the Scientific Director of the Journal of Statistical Mechanics and Applications (JSTAT). He is a member of the International Institute of Physics in Natal and former Director of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Natural Sciences in SISSA. In 2017, he was the Kramers Chair at the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Utrecht. He was awarded the Prize of the Societa' Italiana di Fisica for Science Dissemination in 2013.
"Review from previous edition The book is well suited to provide access into this fascinating field of research and at the same time leads its readers all the way to the forefront of present research. It will provide a solid basis as a textbook for an advanced course in statistical physics, giving the lecturer an ample choice of topics supplemented by problem sets and references to the original literature. " - Holger Frahm, Leibniz University, Hannover
"I am very impressed with the contents of this book, it is certainly needed. The author is a good writer and can explain things well. From the scientific point of view the quality is outstanding. " - Alexei Tsvelik, Brookhaven National Laboratory
"There has been dramatic progress over the last two decades in our understanding of off-critical systems in two dimensions. At present there is no book that explains these developments, which here are tied into the larger framework of statistical mechanics in two dimensions, an area that continues to attract tremendous attention." - Fabian Essler, Oxford University
"The author is an excellent physicist who has contributed very significantly to the field, and has always shown a passion for pedagogy. He is one of a handful of people who look beyond formal theory and think in terms of physics, always trying to push the boundaries of our knowledge. I am sure this book will become a most useful and successful text for graduate students and researchers. " - Hubert Saleur, University of Southern California
