Introduction to Quantum Field Theory
by

Publisher: Harvard University
Number of pages: 262

Description:
The approach I will take in this course is to emphasize that Quantum Field Theory is first and foremost a tool for performing practical calculations. In this regard, I will try to emphasize the physical problems which have driven the historical development of the field, and to show how they can be solved.

These notes offer a lightening introduction to topological quantum field theory in its functorial axiomatisation assuming no or little prior exposure. We highlight the algebraic formulation emerging from a formal generators-and-relations description.
