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 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.

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.

In these lectures we present a few topics in Quantum Field Theory in detail. Some of them are conceptual and some more practical. They have been selected because they appear frequently in current applications to Particle Physics and String Theory.

An introduction to functional integral techniques and 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.
