Lattice Gauge Theory a Short Primer Lectures given at the Psi Zuoz Summer School 2000


In this contribution we give an introduction to the foundations and methods of lattice gauge theory. Starting with a brief discussion of the quantum mechanical path integral, we develop the main ingredients of lattice field theory: functional integrals, Eu-clidean field theory and the space-time discretization of scalar, fermion and gauge fields. Some of… (More)
