The approach is to emphasize that Quantum Field Theory is first and foremost a tool for performing practical calculations. I will emphasize the physical problems which have driven the development of the field, and to show how they can be solved.

An introduction to functional integral techniques and how they can be applied in practice. Though we focus on particle physics and cosmology applications, we emphasize that these techniques can be equally applied to other nonequilibrium phenomena.

These notes offer a lightening introduction to topological quantum field theory in its functorial axiomatisation assuming no or little prior exposure. We highlight the algebraic formulation emerging from a formal generators-and-relations description.

This series of six lectures is an introduction to using the Monte Carlo method to carry out nonperturbative studies in quantum field theories. Path integrals in quantum field theory are reviewed, and their evaluation is presented.
