Relativistic Quantum Field Theory I: Course Description

Professor Alan Guth taught 'Relativistic Quantum Field Theory I' to Ph.D. students in MIT's Physics Department. Specific major topics covered in this first course in a series on quantum field theory include the Klein-Gordon field, the Dirac Field and interacting fields. Specific topics include symmetries, Feynman diagrams, interacting fields, scalar fields quantization and Noether's theorem. Some knowledge of quantum mechanics at the graduate level would be useful. The course was given in lecture format.

Materials included with the course are lecture slides, problem sets and a reading list. If you think you might like to take this course, please visit the introduction to theory of quantum field course page.
