Some Basic Tools of QFT

  title={Some Basic Tools of QFT},
  author={A. V. Ivanov and Marianna Russkikh},
This work has a methodological nature and is a set of lecture notes for undergraduate students. It is devoted to the study of the basic tools of quantum field theory on the example of the simplest cubic ”toy” model. We introduce such concepts as the functional integral, the generating functions, the background field method and the Feynman diagram technique, and also consider relations among them. The model under consideration allows us to perform all the calculations explicitly, which…

Quantum Field Theory and the Standard Model
Providing a comprehensive introduction to quantum field theory, this textbook covers the development of particle physics from its foundations to the discovery of the Higgs boson. Its combination of
Introduction to quantum field theory
Even the uninitiated will know that Quantum Field Theory cannot be introduced systematically in just four lectures. I try to give a reasonably connected outline of part of it, from second
Quantum Theory of Fields
To say that this is the best book on the quantum theory of fields is no praise, since to my knowledge it is the only book on this subject. But it is a very good and most useful book. The original was

The paper is devoted to the construction of an “integral” on an infinite-dimensional space, combining the approaches proposed previously and at the same time the simplest. A new definition of the
Space-Time Approach to Non-Relativistic Quantum Mechanics
Non-relativistic quantum mechanics is formulated here in a different way. It is, however, mathematically equivalent to the familiar formulation. In quantum mechanics the probability of an event which
Airy Functions And Applications To Physics
The use of special functions, and in particular Airy functions, is rather common in physics. The reason may be found in the need, and even in the necessity, to express a physical phenomenon in terms

Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell
This chapter provides a survey of quantum electrodynamics, the quantum theory of the electromagnetic field and its interaction with electrically charged particles, such as electrons. We start by

Quantum Equation of Motion and Two-Loop Cutoff Renormalization for 𝜙3 Model
We present two-loop renormalization of φ3-model effective action by using the background field method and cutoff momentum regularization. In this paper, we also study a derivation of the quantum
