Introduction to Quantum Field Theory: A Guided Self-Study
This course is intended to be an introduction for students with a solid background in non-relativistic quantum mechanics. Necessary elements of special relativity and the Lorentz group will be discussed. The course is intended to be a "guided self-study", working through the first third of the widely used text "An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory", by Peskin and Schroeder . The book covers everything a particle experimentalist needs to know and more (for the theorists) in a thoroughly modern presentation. The first five chapters will bring us to the elementary processes of quantum electrodynamics. We will also invite guest lecturers from both inside and outside the department.
