Group Field Theories

Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 58
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, merging ideas from tensor models and loop quantum gravity.

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.

An introduction to noncommutative quantum field theory is presented, with emphasis on those properties that are intimately tied to string theory and gravity. Topics covered include the Weyl-Wigner correspondence, noncommutative Feynman diagrams, etc.

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.
