Quantum Field Theory I

PREREQUISITES: PHYS-GA 2005 AND PHYS-GA 2012, or permission from instructor.

Meets in 726 Broadway, room 802.

QFT I focuses on the basics of quantum field theory. It starts with the quantization of free spin-0, spin-1/2, and spin-1 fields, and basics of space-time symmetries. It continues with detailed discussion of relativistic perturbation theory, Feynman diagrams, and applications to scattering processes in quantum electrodynamics.
