  3. 13. Nonequilibrium gauge field in Two Particle Irreducible real time formalism

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för astronomi och teoretisk fysik; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik

    Author : Rasmus Hansen; [2019]
    Keywords : Gauge field; non-equilibrium; quantum field theory; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to study what effect a photon field has on the equations of motion and the decay of a charged scalar field in thermal equilibrium at finite temperature and outside of thermal equilibrium. To do this we calculate the two-particle irreducible effective action for the mean fields and propagators and derive their equations of motion. READ MORE
