PHY2404H S SPECIALIZED
Quantum Field Theory II
Official description
This QFT2 course continues the study of quantum field theory started with PHY2403 (QFT1) into more advanced topics. Rough list of topics:  path integral formulation of quantum field theory  loops and renormalization  the renormalization group  nonabelian gauge theories  the Higgs mechanism  anomalies  effective field theory, effective potentials.
 Prerequisite
  QFT1 (PHY2403) or equivalent, roughly corresponding to Peskin & Schroeder Ch 15.  QFT1 prerequisites: Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations of classical mechanics; Maxwell equations, energy and momentum of the electromagnetic fields, Lorentz invariance (special relativity and four vectors); Nonrelativistic quantum mechanics, in particular, angular momentum theory will be relied upon.
