Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 183

Description:
These lectures aim at giving graduate students an introduction to and a working knowledge of path integral methods in a wide variety of fields in physics. Consequently, the lecture notes are organized in three main parts dealing with non-relativistic quantum mechanics, many-body physics and field theory.

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.
