Thursday 14:00 - 18:00, via ZOOM.

Note: Due to the current Coronavirus Crisis the lecture and tutorials will be held online, until further notice. 

Contents

This is an introductory course on Quantum Field Theory.

Program of the Course

  • Principles of classical field theory (e.g. Noether theorem, conserved currents and charges)
  • Canonical quantization of scalar, fermionic and gauge fields
  • S-Matrix formalism and Feynman diagrams
  • Quantum Electrodynamics (QED)
