Quantum Field Theory III

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

Meets in 726 Broadway, room 825.

QFT III covers topics such as anomalies, solitons and instantons, lattice gauge theories, and finite temperature field theories. The course starts with detailed discussions of anomalies in various field theoretic models. It covers at great length nonperturbative techniques used to study solitons and instantons. The course also gives a description of gauge theories on a lattice, their applications to strong interactions, as well as field theories at finite temperature and their uses in particle physics and cosmology.
