Path Integral Methods and Applications
by Richard MacKenzie
Publisher: arXiv 2000
Number of pages: 55
These lectures are intended as an introduction to the technique of path integrals and their applications in physics. The audience is mainly first-year graduate students, and it is assumed that the reader has a good foundation in quantum mechanics. No prior exposure to path integrals is assumed, however.

An introduction into the theory of the Feynman path integral in quantum mechanics. The general formulation in Riemann spaces is given based on the Weyl- ordering prescription, respectively product ordering prescription, in the quantum Hamiltonian.

It is far easier for students to learn QFT first by the canonical quantization method, and then move on to the path integral approach. This text will help such students, as well as those who are forced to begin their study of QFT via path integrals.
