by Ashok Das




Traditionally, field theory is taught through canonical quantization with a heavy emphasis on high energy physics. However, the techniques of field theory are applicable as well and are extensively used in various other areas of physics such as condensed matter, nuclear physics and statistical mechanics. The path integral approach brings out this feature most clearly. In this book, the path integral approach is developed in detail completely within the context of quantum mechanics. Subsequently, it is applied to various areas of physics.

This is an excellent introduction to the path integral formulation offield theories. The author introduces path integrals in pretty much the same way as Feynman and Hibbs did before in their celebrated book, and then proceeds to develop some methods to compute them. The emphasis on functional methods to approach a field theory make this book very interesting, covering topics like relativistic field theories and gauge theories. This book contains no excercises.

This book will introduce you to the path integral

formulation of QFT, slightly more mathematical than

Zee's QFT in a Nutshell.

This one is a good complement to Ryder's book however on

the negative side the treatment is quite superficial

and shallow.

Overall, enjoyable reading... and would be a must buy

had it not been for its ridiculous price tag...
