Introduction to Algebraic and Constructive Quantum Field Theory
by John C. Baez, Irving E. Segal, Zhengfang Zhou
Publisher: Princeton University Press 1992
Number of pages: 316
The authors present a rigorous treatment of the first principles of the algebraic and analytic core of quantum field theory. Their aim is to correlate modern mathematical theory with the explanation of the observed process of particle production and of particle-wave duality that heuristic quantum field theory provides. The authors address readers interested in fundamental mathematical physics and who have at least the training of an entering graduate student.

All particles in the standard model correspond to some field in a quantum field theory. Our task is to understand how this works, how to describe interactions of these particles using quantum field theory, and how to compute various processes.

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.

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 as a simple two-dimensional QFT.

This introduction to quantum field theory will be of value not only to beginning students but also to practicing physicists interested in learning or reviewing specific topics. The material is presented in an intuitively clear and informal style.
