Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors have produced a very important and detailed book on the subject of the shastic limit of quantum field theory. In particular, they formulate the shastic limit in the framework of an algebraic central limit theory using the sort of scaling limits encountered in quantum transport phenomena. [...] The book is well written and covers many related problems [...] The audience will be mathematical and theoretical physicists. The authors are to be congratulated for showing the power and range of application of quantum probability to quantum physics." (Mathematical Reviews 2003h)
