MetadataShow full item record
In 8.323, Relativistic Quantum Field Theory I, concepts and basic techniques are developed through applications in elementary particle physics, and condensed matter physics. Topics include: Classical field theory, symmetries, and Noether's theorem. Quantization of scalar fields and spin 1/2 fields. Interacting fields and Feynman diagrams.
Classical field theory, symmetries, and Noether's theorem, Quantization of scalar fields, spin fields, and Gauge bosons, Feynman graphs, analytic properties of amplitudes and unitarity of the S-matrix, Calculations in quantum electrodynamics (QED), Introduction to renormalization, Quantum theory
