Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 112
These notes are an expanded version of lectures given at the Croatian School on Black Holes at Trpanj, June 21-25, 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.

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 is presented.

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.

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.

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.
