Searching for an introductory Textbook on Fock space

  • #1
Hello Everbody!

I want to learn Fock-space. Can somebody point me to a useful textbook where the basics are covered? Or even a good textbook where a chapter or two cover it?

Many thanks in advance!

Sorry for the very late reply. I was just too busy lately. I'll check vanhees recommendation!

I found two good books:

N. N. Bogoliubov, D. V. Shirkov, Introduction to axiomatic quantum field theory

Silvan S. Schweber, An Introduction to Relativistic Quantum Field Theory

Although Fock space is only treated in certain chapters in these books I liked the concise and very clear treatment.

atyys first two links are very good! Fetters book is also good, although I'm still working through it. I'll update when I have worked through the first chapter.
