**The Monte Carlo Method in Quantum Field Theory**

by Colin Morningstar

**Publisher**: arXiv 2007**Number of pages**: 77

**Description**:

This series of six lectures is an introduction to using the Monte Carlo method to carry out nonperturbative studies in quantum field theories. Path integrals in quantum field theory are reviewed, and their evaluation by the Monte Carlo method with Markov-chain based importance sampling is presented.
