An Introduction into the Feynman Path Integral
by Christian Grosche
Publisher: arXiv 1993
Number of pages: 94
A short introduction is given into the theory of the Feynman path integral in quantum mechanics. The general formulation in Riemann spaces is given based on the Weyl- ordering prescription, respectively product ordering prescription, in the quantum Hamiltonian. Also, the theory of space-time transformations and separation of variables is outlined. As elementary examples, the usual harmonic oscillator, the radial harmonic oscillator, and the Coulomb potential are discussed.

These lectures aim at giving graduate students an introduction to and a working knowledge of path integral methods in a wide variety of fields in physics. The text deals with non-relativistic quantum mechanics, many-body physics and field theory.

We describe Feynman's path integral approach to quantum mechanics and quantum field theory from a functional integral point of view, where focus lies in Euclidean field theory. Gaussian measure and the construction of the Wiener measure are covered.

These are notes for part of a course on advanced quantum mechanics given to 4th year physics students. The only prerequisites, however, are a basic knowledge of the Schroedinger and Heisenberg pictures of standard quantum mechanics.
