An Introduction into the Feynman Path Integral
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 94

Description:
A short introduction is given into the theory of the Feynman path integral in quantum mechanics. The general formulation in Riemann spaces is given based on the Weyl- ordering prescription, respectively product ordering prescription, in the quantum Hamiltonian. Also, the theory of space-time transformations and separation of variables is outlined. As elementary examples, the usual harmonic oscillator, the radial harmonic oscillator, and the Coulomb potential are discussed.

It is far easier for students to learn QFT first by the canonical quantization method, and then move on to the path integral approach. This text will help such students, as well as those who are forced to begin their study of QFT via path integrals.
