Semiclassical Physics explores a way of doing quantum mechanics using a simplified path-integral formalism, with a focus on the classical motion of the particle. This book attempts to convey to the reader that semiclassical physics can be fun, as well as useful for understanding quantum fluctuations in interacting many-body systems. The text is addressed to graduate students with a basic knowledge of classical and quantum mechanics, and to scientists with an interest in semiclassical methods. The book's approach is informal, guided largely by simple solvable models and by practical applications to real physical phenomena. The new, paperback edition includes corrections to misprints, errors, unclear formulations, and some inconsistencies of notation, as well as the addition of recent references that are of direct relevance to the examples in the book. A new section on Bose-Einstein condensation in a harmonic trap has been added in the context of the Thomas-Fermi model.
