Book cover: Introduction to Quantum Field TheoryIntroduction to Quantum Field Theory
by - Harvard University ,
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.
