This systematic algebraic approach concerns problems involving a large number of degrees of freedom. It extends the traditional formalism of quantum mechanics, and it eliminates conceptual and mathematical difficulties common to the development of statistical mechanics and quantum field theory. But quantum theory seems to fail to do this: taken literally as a theory of the world, it seems to make crazy claims: particles are in two places at once; cats are alive and dead at the same time. So physicists and philosophers have often been led either to give up on the idea that quantum theory describes reality, or to modify or augment the.

The connection between statistical mechanics on the one side and quantum mechanics and quantum field theory on the other side is based on the analogy between thermal and quantum fluctuations. Formally, the connection is expressed through the mathematical equivalence between the partition function in statistical mechanics and the propagator in quantum field theory. This perspective highlights recent developments in the field of statistical mechanics for molecular liquids, i.e. the integral equation (IE) theory, especially focusing on hybrid approaches incorporating quantum chemistry and IE theory. The electronic structure of solvated molecules is characterized, followed by recent developments and applications.

Here is an unordered list of online physics books available for free download. There are books covering the areas of classical mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, optics, quantum physics, atomic and nuclear physics, astrophysics, and more. Quantum field theory is the result of the combination of classical field theory, quantum mechanics, and special relativity.: xi A brief overview of these theoretical precursors is in order. The earliest successful classical field theory is one that emerged from Newton's law of universal gravitation, despite the complete absence of the concept of fields from his treatise Philosophiæ.
