This book covers the fundamentals of path integrals, both the Wiener and
Feynman types, and their many applications in physics. It deals with
systems that have an infinite number of degrees of freedom. The book
discusses the general physical background and concepts of the path integral
approach used, followed by the most typical and important applications as
well as problems with either their solutions or hints how to solve them.
Each chapter is self-contained and can be considered as an independent
textbook. It provides a comprehensive, detailed, and systematic account of
the subject suitable for both students and experienced researchers.
