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.

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.

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 introduce the subject of quantum field theory in curved spacetime and some of its applications and the questions they raise. Topics include particle creation in time-dependent metrics, quantum origin of primordial perturbations, etc.
