Covariant quantization of gauge theories is also carried out with a detailed description of the BRST symmetry. In addition to continuous symmetries, however, there are a few discrete symmetries which play a fundamental role in physics. The full set of lecture notes can be downloaded here, together with videos of the course when it was repeated at the Perimeter Institute. This second edition includes two new chapters, one on Nielsen identities and the other on basics of global supersymmetry. El libro no es muy alto pero si ancho. Not dark at all and can strain the eyes if it is not read in the right lighting. Quantization of the Free Scalar Field . Physics 230bc, Field Theory and Topology, 2000. The Dirac Field, Part II . Last updated October 2012. Regularization and (BPHZ) renormalization of field theories as well as gauge theories are discussed in detail, leading to a derivation of the renormalization group equation. For this reason the lectures were intended to provide a review of those parts of the subject to be used later by other lec-turers.

It is wonderful to have these lectures written down so that they can be pored over and savored multiple times. Reviewed in the United States on November 22, 2018. Recorded in 1975-1976. An introductory course on quantum field theory, aimed at first year graduate students. He had apparently been following the quark theory during this period and culminating in attending a full lecture course given by Gell-Mann at Cambridge round about 1966.
