Lectures notes for 2004 Les Houches Summer School on "Nanoscopic Quantum Transport". These lectures contain an introduction to Keldysh formalism for interacting bosonic and fermionic systems, presented in the functional integral framework. Covered topics include: kinetic theory, relation to classical techniques (such as Martin--Siggia--Rose and Fokker--Planck), non--linear sigma model for disordered fermions, etc.

Keldysh technique and non-linear σ-model: basic principles and applications
The purpose of this review is to provide a comprehensive pedagogical introduction into Keldysh technique for interacting out-of-equilibrium fermionic and bosonic systems. The emphasis is placed on a

We consider the simplest example of a nonstationary quantum system which is quantum mechanical oscillator with varying frequency and [Formula: see text] self-interaction. We calculate loop
The functional renormalization group for zero-dimensional quantum systems in and out of equilibrium
We study transport properties of quantum impurity systems using the functional renormalization group. The latter is an RG-based diagrammatic tool to treat Coulomb interactions in a fast and flexible
Dissipation by ideal quantum gas
The effective Lagrangian of a test particle, interacting with an ideal gas, is calculated with in the Closed Time Path formalism in the one-loop and the leading order of the particle trajectory. The
Particle creation in nonstationary large N quantum mechanics
We consider an analog of particle production in a quartic O(N) quantum oscillator with time-dependent frequency, which is a toy model of particle production in the dynamical Casimir effect and de
Superfluids, Fluctuations and Disorder
We present a field-theory description of ultracold bosonic atoms in the presence of a disordered external potential. By means of functional integration techniques, we aim to investigate and review
Non-Equilibrium Bose-Einstein Condensation in a Dissipative Environment
Solid state quantum condensates can differ from other condensates, such as Helium, ultracold atomic gases, and superconductors, in that the condensing quasiparticles have relatively short lifetimes,
Quantum statistical mechanics in infinitely extended systems ($C^*$ algebraic approach)
The derivation of macroscopic irreversible dynamics of nonequilibrium systems from microscopic equations was recently revisited from the point of view of infinitely extended quantum systems. Here we
