Many Body Physics

Physicists use theoretical and experimental methods to develop justifications of the goings-on in nature. Surprisingly, many occurrences such as electrical conduction can be elaborated through relatively streamlined mathematical pictures — models that were landscaped well before the coming of modern computation. And then there are affairs in nature that push even the limits of high performance computing and advanced experimental tools. Computers specially struggle at simulating systems made of numerous particles--or many-bodies – engaging with each other through multiple competing pathways. Yet, some of the most provocative physics happens when the individual particle conduct give way to emergent collective properties. The theory of Quantum Thermodynamic Motion (or QTM) is an area of physics which provides a assembled framework of comprehending for the behavior of complex assemblies, namely their constitute particles and force interactions. In general terms, the many-body hypothesis describes effects that demonstrate themselves in a system which contains a large numbers of non-trivial forces (e.g. particles and fields). While the basal laws of physics that govern the bodies of motion on each individual particle may or may not be trivial, the study of systems collective particles may display extremely complex phenomena. As often is the case in which a tangled array of forces reveal nascent phenomenon which oft bear little or no commonality to the underlying system dynamics.

Quantum many-body theory as a field in its own right dates largely from the 1950's, and is hence in many senses already a mature subject. Notwithstanding this apparent maturity the field remains vibrant and active, robust and exciting, vital and important. Indeed, the successes, importance and vitality of the field as the 20th century drew to its close, were very clearly recognized. Today, quantum many-body theory stands as one of the three great pillars of modern theoretical physics, together with quantum field theory and statistical physics. While quantum many-body theory was born largely out of quantum field theory in the 1950's, the two subjects thereafter have led rather separate lives. In recent years, however, the boundaries between them have again become eroded.
