Statistical Physics and Thermodynamics

Statistical physics covers a host of different things, covering everything that can be formulated in terms of something analogous to a Boltzmann distribution, which includes e.g. the critical phenomena in the thermodynamics of various systems, and the (Euclidean) Path Integral formulation of various Field Theories. Here I have been interested in various subjects, like Lattice Gauge Theory for e.g. Yang Mills fields, Random Surfaces as models for String models, the thermodynamics of various kinds of polymers. Presently, I am interested in the transformation of the thermodynamics of certain kinds of interacting polymers to a field theory, by rewriting the interactions as quadratic expressions, which can be linearized by means of a (functional) Fourier transform. THis allows to integrate out the original coordinates in favour of a resulting field theory.
