**Path Integral Methods and Applications**

by Richard MacKenzie

**Publisher**: arXiv 2000**Number of pages**: 55

**Description**:

These lectures are intended as an introduction to the technique of path integrals and their applications in physics. The audience is mainly first-year graduate students, and it is assumed that the reader has a good foundation in quantum mechanics. No prior exposure to path integrals is assumed, however.
