**As Scales Become Separated: Lectures on Effective Field Theory**

by Timothy Cohen

**Publisher**: arXiv.org 2019**Number of pages**: 183

**Description**:

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 is emphasized.
