Publisher: arXiv.org 2019
Number of pages: 183
These lectures aim to provide a pedagogical introduction to the philosophical underpinnings and technical features of Effective Field Theory (EFT). Improving control of S-matrix elements in the presence of a large hierarchy of physical scales m<

It covers classical and quantum field theory, including many recent topics at an introductory yet nontrivial level: supersymmetry, general relativity, supergravity, strings, 1/N expansion in QCD, spacecone, many useful gauges, etc.

This is a set of lecture notes on the operator algebraic approach to 2-dimensional conformal field theory. Representation theoretic aspects and connections to vertex operator algebras are emphasized. No knowledge on operator algebras is assumed.

We provide an introduction to conformal field theory on the plane in the conformal bootstrap approach. We introduce the bootstrap approach to quantum field theory, and how they apply to two-dimensional theories with local conformal symmetry.

These notes cover some topics in both the perturbative and non-perturbative topological Chern-Simons theory: the quantization of Chern-Simons theory, the use of surgery for computation, brief discussions about framings, eta invariants, etc.
