Introduction to Nonequilibrium Quantum Field Theory
by J. Berges
Publisher: arXiv 2004
Number of pages: 131
Here we give an introduction to efficient functional integral techniques and show how they can be applied in practice. Though we focus on particle physics and cosmology applications, we emphasize that these techniques can be equally applied to other nonequilibrium phenomena in complex many body systems.

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.

This paper is a survey of AQFT, with an orientation towards foundational topics. In addition to covering the basics of the theory, we discuss issues related to nonlocality, the particle concept, the field concept, and inequivalent representations.

The purpose of this review is to bridge the gap between a standard course in quantum field theory and recent fascinating developments in the studies of on-shell scattering amplitudes. We build up the subject from basic quantum field theory...
