I need something like a summary of existing results, including the treatment of BCS Hamiltonian and Hubbard model. Auerbach's book is a good one but I still hope to get more comprehensive review. My purpose is to compare the methods and give an outline of the mathematical framework behind this. Currently I am working on a small problem, where I am asked to obtain some effective action from variational method. To really understand what I am doing, I need to understand other applications of the variational methods and hopefully to draw some analogies.
