Kubo and Zubarev Formulations of Response Theory

  • R. B. Stinchcombe
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 35)

Abstract

The theory of the linear response of systems to external adiabatic and isothermal perturbations is reviewed. The relationship of the response coefficient to correlation functions and to Green functions is developed following the work of Kubo and Zubarev. The Green function method is illustrated with examples, and brief treatments are given of sum rules and of the fluctuation-dissipation theorem. It is shown how the framework may be used to discuss quasiparticle and collective modes, equilibrium thermal properties, and cross sections for neutron and electromagnetic scattering.
