Course: PHYS 599 Independent Study QFT Spring 03

INSTRUCTOR: Dr. Heidi Fearn

I currently have 6 graduate students enrolled in PHYS 599. All 6 are working through the first seven chapters of the book by Hatfield; They are also required to write a few pages of notes on complex contour integration, used for Feynman propagators. Residue theory. We meet every saturday to discuss any problems and work through the book.

TEXT:

Notes will be handed out in class. Quantum Field Theory of Point Particles and Strings by by Brian Hatfield. I would also recommend books on field theory by Bjoken and Drell, Peskin and Schroeder, Kaku, Dirac and Feynman.
