Quantum Field Theory on Noncommutative Spaces
by Richard J. Szabo
Publisher: arXiv 2003
Number of pages: 111
A pedagogical and self-contained introduction to noncommutative quantum field theory is presented, with emphasis on those properties that are intimately tied to string theory and gravity. Topics covered include the Weyl-Wigner correspondence, noncommutative Feynman diagrams, UV/IR mixing, noncommutative Yang-Mills theory on infinite space and on the torus, Morita equivalences of noncommutative gauge theories, twisted reduced models, and an in-depth study of the gauge group of noncommutative Yang-Mills theory.

Group field theories are particular quantum field theories defined on D copies of a group which reproduce spin foam amplitudes on a space-time of dimension D. In these lecture notes, we present the general construction of group field theories.

These notes offer a lightening introduction to topological quantum field theory in its functorial axiomatisation assuming no or little prior exposure. We highlight the algebraic formulation emerging from a formal generators-and-relations description.

These notes are an expanded version of lectures given in 2010. The aim is to provide a practical introduction to quantum field theory in curved spacetime and related black hole physics, with AdS / CFT as the loose motivation.
