A Guide to Quantum Field Theory
by

Publisher: Durham University
Number of pages: 114

Description:
The course will introduce Quantum Field Theory (QFT) by bringing together concepts from classical Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, quantum mechanics and special relativity. We will also introduce string theory, both as a simple two-dimensional QFT and as a way to go beyond QFT concepts.

The approach is to emphasize that Quantum Field Theory is first and foremost a tool for performing practical calculations. I will emphasize the physical problems which have driven the development of the field, and to show how they can be solved.
