not yet rated|write a review
This book is an introduction to the modern ways of teaching classical and quantum field theories. A key tool is symmetries. For the resolution of classical theories, special attention is given to the definition of advanced or retarded potentials to ease the understanding of path integrals. The Path integral is used as the conceptual tool for defining the quantum field theories. The classical formalism is presented as a useful way to concretely compute observables that one defines in the path integral framework. The book contains special chapters which are devoted to new domains which have not been presented in other texts. They include constructive quantum field theories and topological field theory.

From the Jacket

Quantum field theory has enormously matured during the last two decades.  It provides an extremely powerful tool to describe a large variety of fundamental physical phenomenoa over many scales of distances.  Once a specialized field in elementary particle physics, quantum field theory has since been dramatically extended to cover many ...
