**Quantum Field Theory as a Faithful Image of Nature**

by Hans Christian Ã–ttinger

**Publisher**: arXiv 2016**Number of pages**: 130

**Description**:

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.

**Introductory Lectures on Quantum Field Theory**

by

**Luis Alvarez-Gaume, Miguel A. Vazquez-Mozo**-

**arXiv**

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.
