Informal Lectures on Lattice Gauge Theory

Informal Lectures on Lattice Gauge Theory
by Guy D. Moore

Publisher: McGill University 2003
Number of pages: 50

The object is to introduce the ideas behind lattice gauge theory, with an intended audience of quantum field theorists with no lattice experience. I concentrate on field theory aspects which are elucidated by lattice gauge theory; ideas of effective field theory, the geometrical meaning of gauge invariance, attempts to rigorously define confinement, instantons and topology, and a concrete example of what complications arise when one tries to regulate chiral theories.
