I on the other hand enjoyed Itzykson & Zuber’s textbook. It was very clear, . Real men learn QFT from the collected works of Julian Schwinger. Itzykson C., Zuber J.B., Quantum field theory. One of my personal This book will teach you that there is another way to do QFT. One that is. C. Itzykson and J.-B.

Quantum Field Theory

The subtitle “A Tourist Guide for Mathematicians” is very descriptive. For further reading Tong’s string theory notes are great and the other part 3 particle physics notes are also pretty good: If you are posting a link to your own website, please familiarise yourself with the global rules on self-promotion. Product Description Product Details Quantum field theory remains among the most important tools in defining and explaining the microscopic world. If you want to deepen your understanding or if you want to learn everything including important proofs these are the perfect books for you.

He makes it available on his website for free. It also doesn’t go too in depth over renormalization. But there are many people I respect, who are definitely at least itzyksob qualified as I am to judge QFT textbooks, who like Srednicki.


The presentation is very general and detailed, itzyoson the statements are very precise and rigorous. This two-part approach begins with the standard quantization of electrodynamics, culminating in the perturbative renormalization. Permian I’ve only had a very superficial look at that book, and I can’t really say I’m a fan of the style.

It’s just an introduction, but I zzuber http: In spite of its title, I’m not sure mathematicians will find this book particularly clear or useful.

I really like the organisation and design of the book, qct consists of around a hundred of short and essentially self-contained chapters that introduce a single topic, discuss it in the necessary level of detail, and move on to the next topic. Log in or sign up in seconds.

Finally, Nair also includes a wonderful final chapter on the ideas behind geometric quantization and their application to the quantization of the Chern-Simons-Witten model.

Dubrovin-Novikov-Fomenko Itzyksob like too. The solutions help tremendously for the self study It has very nice discussion of several topics.


Day Post Mon What are you working on? The book is rather precise in its statements, and the author is upfront about technical difficulties and the ill-definedness is this a word?

However, sometimes they do not explain things. Similar to above, but much more approachable. Physics Stack Exchange works best with JavaScript enabled. Some explanations in that book are too cryptic for the beginner in my opinion. They are very good, but I don’t know these modern books I believe that for a second course of quantum field theory can be good, because the Bogoliubov books are very old.

For further reading Tong’s string theory notes are great and the other part 3 particle physics notes are also pretty good:. Email Required, but never shown.

QFT text for self-study? : Physics

Peskin and Schroeder is good if you want to dive into actually computing things. Thanks for all the great responses. Seconding Altand and Simons. Itzyksson unitary mod N.
