Relativistic Quantum Field Theory II: Course Description

'Relativistic Quantum Field Theory II' is the second class in a series of three quantum field theory courses. Professor Barton Zwiebach taught the course for MIT's Physics Department. It was designed for doctoral Physics students, concentrating in nuclear and particle theory. The course introduces advanced topics that build upon the material learned in 'Relativistic Quantum Field Theory I', including BRST symmetry and anomalies in perturbation theory. 'Relativistic Quantum Field Theory II' also prepares students for the third course in the sequence by familiarizing them with symmetry breaking and renormalization. The course took a lecture - recitation format.

'Relativistic Quantum Field Theory II' OpenCourseWare provides access to the course reading list and problem sets. To find out more, please visit the advance topics in quantum theory of fields course page.
