Description The new edition of this well received primer on rigorous aspects of symmetry breaking presents a more detailed and thorough discussion of the mechanism of symmetry breaking in classical field theory in relation with the Noether theorem. Moreover, the link between symmetry breaking strovchi massless Goldstone bosons in Coulomb systems and in gauge theories is made more explicit.
A subject index has been added and a number of misprints have been corrected.

Back cover copy This new edition of Prof. Strocchi’s well received primer on rigorous aspects of symmetry breaking presents a more detailed and thorough discussion of the mechanism of symmetry breaking in classical field theory in relation with the Noether theorem.
Moreover, the link between symmetry breaking without massless Goldstone bosons in Coulomb systems and in gauge theories is made more explicit in terms of the delocalized Coulomb dynamics.
Furthermore, the chapter on the Higgs mechanism has been significantly expanded with a non-perturbative treatment of the Higgs phenomenon, at the basis of the standard model of particle physics, in the local and in the Coulomb gauges. Last but not least, a subject index has been added and a number of strodchi have been corrected.
From the reviews of the first edition: The notion of spontaneous symmetry breaking has proven extremely valuable, the problem is that most derivations are perturbative and heuristic. Yet mathematically precise versions do exist, but are not widely known.

It is precisely the aim of his book to correct this unbalance. It could frano be a good basis for a graduate course in mathematical physics. It is written in a pleasant style at a level suitable for graduate students in theoretical physics. While mathematically proper, it is not forbidding for ftanco physics readership; the author is always aware this subject is a branch of physics. It should make profitable reading for many theoretical physicists. A, 38 In these notes the author explores the phenomenon of spontaneous symmetry breaking as it arises in classical and quantum frajco.
Despite many accounts in popular textbooks and a widespread belief, the phenomenon is rather subtle, requires an infinite set of degrees of freedom and an advanced mathematical setting of the system under investigation.

Review Text From the reviews of the second edition: The monograph gives a strong mathematical base to the SSB phenomena in applied mathematics and physics. Therefore it ftanco be very useful for mathematicians and physicists, students of relevant specialties. Review quote From the reviews of the second edition:
