Quantum Field Theory as a Faithful Image of Nature
by Hans Christian Öttinger
Publisher: arXiv 2016
Number of pages: 130
This book can be used as a textbook on quantum field theory for students of physics or as a monograph for philosophers and physicists interested in the epistemological foundations of particle physics. The benefits of an approach resting on philosophical foundations is twofold: the reader is stimulated to critical thinking and the entire story flows very naturally, thus removing all the mysteries from quantum field theory.

The book gives an exposition of the relations among the following three topics: monoidal tensor categories (such as a category of representations of a quantum group), 3-dimensional topological quantum field theory, and 2-dimensional modular functors.

In these lectures we present a few topics in Quantum Field Theory in detail. Some of them are conceptual and some more practical. They have been selected because they appear frequently in current applications to Particle Physics and String Theory.

An introduction to Feynman integrals. In the first part of the course the author reviews the basics of the perturbative expansion in quantum field theories. In the second part of the course he will discuss more advanced topics.
