Organized into four chapters, this book begins with a presentation of the proof of the asymptotic relations for the many-time correlation functions. Chapter 2 details the construction of a proof of the generalized asymptotic relations for the many-time correlation averages. Chapter 3 explains the correlation functions for systems with four-fermion negative interaction. The last chapter shows the model systems with positive and negative interaction components.
