Number of pages: 885

Description:
It covers classical and quantum field theory, including many recent topics at an introductory yet nontrivial level: supersymmetry, general relativity, supergravity, strings, 1/N expansion (color ordering) in QCD, spacecone (spinor helicity), many useful gauges, such as Gervais-Neveu, Nielsen-Kallosh, unitary lightcone, and even string gauges in gravity, finite N=1 supersymmetric theories.
