about this item

This textbook introduces the formal and conceptual foundations of quantum field theory. It explains space-time; the theory of special relativity and its application to the classical description of the motion of a free particle and a field; the quantum formulation of field theory; quantum electrodynamics and the Fermi theory of neutron beta decay; problems associated with the quantization of the electromagnetic field; the Dirac equation and spinor fields; the structure of the interaction term between charged particles and the electromagnetic field; the derivation of relativistic perturbation theory and its application to the calculation of observable quantities; and neutrino oscillations. The book assumes students have taken previous courses in classical mechanics, relativity, and quantum mechanics. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
