AB - "Quantum field theory is the basic mathematical framework that is used to describe elementary particles. It is a cornerstone of modern physics. This textbook provides a complete and essential introduction to this subject. Assuming only an undergraduate knowledge of quantum mechanics and special relativity, it is ideal for graduate students beginning the study of elementary particles, and will also be of value to those in related fields such as condensed-matter physics." "The step-by-step presentation begins with basic concepts illustrated by simple examples, and proceeds through historically important results to thorough treatments of modern topics such as the renormalization group, spinor-helicity methods for quark and gluon scattering, magnetic monopoles, instantons, supersymmetry, and the unification of forces."--Jacket.
