Introduction to Quantum Field Theory by Michael
E. Peskin, Daniel V. Schroeder (Contributor)
Introduction to Quantum Field Theory is a textbook intended for the graduate
physics course covering relativistic quantum mechanics, quantum electrodynamics,
and Feynman diagrams. The authors make these subjects accessible through
carefully worked examples illustrating the technical aspects of the subject,
and intuitive explanations of what is going on behind the mathematics.
An Interpretive Introduction to
Quantum Field Theory by Paul Teller
a critically acclaimed work, philosophy professor Paul Teller lays forth
the basic ideas of quantum field theory in a way that is understandable
to readers who are familiar with non-relativistic quantum mechanics.
Quantum Theory of Fields: Foundations by Steven Weinberg
reference for physicists and mathematicians, or textbook for a graduate
course. Nobel Prize-winning physicist Weinberg (U. of Texas) provides
a self-contained, comprehensive introduction to quantum field theory.
Volume I introduces the foundations, emphasizing the reasons why such
a theory should describe nature.
The Quantum Theory of Fields: Modern Applications by Steven Weinberg
second volume in Weinberg's quantum field theory series covers topics
including renormalization, anomalies, BRST quantization and the Standard
Model of particle physyics.
The Quantum Theory of Fields: Supersymmetry by Steven Weinberg
third volume in Weinberg's series on quantum field theory won't be published
until December. It will cover topics in sypersymmetric quantum field theory
including superunification phenomenology and supergravity. When this is
released, it will be the most up-to-date book on supersymmetry available.
Dawning of Gauge Theory (Princeton Series in Physics) by Lochlainn
theoretical physics O'Raifeartaigh has put together a compelling and enlightening
reconstruction of the early days of development of gauge field theory
from 1916-1956. His history is illustrated by including a selection of
relevant articles, many of them appearing here for the first time in English,
notably by Weyl, Schrodinger, and other leading theorists of the time.
Lie Algebras in Particle Physics by Howard Georgi
book is an update of an old classic. Howard Georgi is the co-inventor
(with Sheldon Glashow) of the SU(5) theory. This extensively revised edition
of his book text makes the theory of Lie groups accessible to graduate
students, while offering a perspective on the way in which knowledge of
such groups can provide an insight into the development of unified theories
of strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions.
to Gauge Field Theory (Graduate Student Series in Physics) by David Bailin, Alexander Love
is a revised edition of the popular text for graduate students on Feynman's
path integral treatment of gauge theories. There is a new section on instantons
and axions, and calculations have been updated to make use of the more
precise values of gauge coupling constants now available. This books assumes
a knowledge of relativistic quantum mechanics but none of quantum field
theory. It provides an invaluable introduction to the path integral approach
to relativistic quantum field theories.
