“An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory”, by Peskin and Schroeder
Homework: There will normally be a homework assignment each week.
Late homeworks will not be accepted without
special permission, generally requested in advance.
Homeworks will be graded and will be the major part (perhaps all) of
your final grade.
Class Times: The class meets in ARC 212, third
period. (noon-1:20 PM).
Classes will start promptly, so please come on time.
I expect to follow Peskin and Schroeder pretty closely, except near the
beginning and the end of the course. See the Syllabus for details.
there are many other useful books
which give alternate presentations or treat subjects in more depth.
A list of some of them are here
Syllabus: The material to be covered is, roughly speaking, what is
in Peskin and Schroeder, Chapters 2-7, plus parts of chapters 11, 16 and 20.
For details, see the syllabus. There may be
some changes as we go along.
