Quantum field theory

Author: Lewis H Ryder
Publisher: Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 1996.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 2nd edView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book is a modern pedagogic introduction to the ideas and techniques of quantum field theory. After a brief overview of particle physics and a survey of relativistic wave equations and Lagrangian methods, the quantum theory of scalar and spinor fields, and then of gauge fields, is developed. The emphasis throughout is on functional methods, which have played a large part in modern field theory. The book  Read more...
