Advanced Topics in Effective Field Theory
by

Publisher: University of Toronto
Number of pages: 77

Description:
This text will help students fill the gap of knowledge between the QFT courses students take when they start graduate work in theoretical physics, and actual research. The book covers the basics of three vitally important techniques used in modern theoretical physics research: spontaneous symmetry breaking, effective field theory and the renormalization group.
