**A Guide to Quantum Field Theory**

by Kasper Peeters

**Publisher**: Durham University 2014**Number of pages**: 112

**Description**:

The course will introduce Quantum Field Theory (QFT) by bringing together concepts from classical Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, quantum mechanics and special relativity. We will also introduce string theory, both as a simple two-dimensional QFT and as a way to go beyond QFT concepts.
