Quantum Field Theory

Last taught in Spring Semester 2006

Dr Kirill Krasnov, School of Mathematical Sciences

Quantum Field Theory is the study of the quantum dynamics of relativistic particles. The module gives the quantum description of the electrons, photons and other elementary particles, including a discussion of spin, and bosons and fermions. Lectures will provide an introduction to functional integrals, Feynman diagrams, and the standard model of particle physics.

Suitable for year 3/4 undergraduates and postgraduates
