Notes on Quantum Field Theory
by Sidney Coleman
Publisher: arXiv 1986
Number of pages: 337
These notes were taken by Brian Hill during Sidney Coleman's lectures on Quantum Field Theory (Physics 253), given at Harvard University in Fall semester of the 1986-1987 academic year. These notes remain the principal source for the Physics 253a materials.

The approach is to emphasize that Quantum Field Theory is first and foremost a tool for performing practical calculations. I will emphasize the physical problems which have driven the development of the field, and to show how they can be solved.

Presently, all observational evidence points to the fact that Quantum Field Theory provides a good description of all known elementary particles. The scope of these lectures is to provide an introduction to the formalism of Quantum Field Theory.

The book gives an exposition of the relations among the following three topics: monoidal tensor categories (such as a category of representations of a quantum group), 3-dimensional topological quantum field theory, and 2-dimensional modular functors.

Group field theories are particular quantum field theories defined on D copies of a group which reproduce spin foam amplitudes on a space-time of dimension D. In these lecture notes, we present the general construction of group field theories.
