An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory
by Mrinal Dasgupta
Publisher: University of Manchester 2008
Number of pages: 48
Presently, all observational evidence points to the fact that Quantum Field Theory (QFT) provides a good description of all known elementary particles, as well as for particle physics beyond the Standard Model for energies ranging up to the Planck scale. The scope of these lectures is to provide an introduction to the formalism of Quantum Field Theory.

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.

The book presents a rigorous treatment of the first principles of the algebraic and analytic core of quantum field theory. The authors address readers interested in fundamental mathematical physics and who have the training of a graduate student.

The author presents a concise and self-contained introduction to nonequilibrium statistical mechanics with quantum field theory. Readers are assumed to be familiar with the Matsubara formalism of equilibrium statistical mechanics.

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.
