An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory

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.

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.

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.

An introduction to Feynman integrals. In the first part of the course the author reviews the basics of the perturbative expansion in quantum field theories. In the second part of the course he will discuss more advanced topics.
