Quantum Field Theory 571

Winter 2014

Recommended references -- best to read up on each topic in at least two books:

    Srednicki:  Quantum Field Theory
    Itzykson & Zuber:  Quantum Field Theory
    Peskin and Schroeder: An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory
    Ramond: Field Theory: A Modern Primer
    Brown: Quantum Field Theory

A new book has just appears which looks like it might be really good:

    Schwartz: Quantum Field Theory and the Standard Model

To get to more advanced topics, nothing compares to:

    Coleman: Aspects of Symmetry (especially chapters "Secret Symmetry", "Uses of Instantons", and "Large N")


    Representations of the Lorentz group
    Dimensional Regularization
    Fermion Path Integration
    NJL Model Note
    g-2 lecture notes
