The purpose of this review is to bridge the gap between a standard course in quantum field theory and recent fascinating developments in the studies of on-shell scattering amplitudes. We build up the subject from basic quantum field theory, starting with Feynman rules for simple processes in Yukawa theory and QED.

We give a pedagogical introduction to algebraic quantum field theory (AQFT), with the aim of explaining its key structures and features. Topics covered include: algebraic formulations of quantum theory and the GNS representation theorem, etc.

These notes are an expanded version of lectures given in 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.
