**An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory**

by Mrinal Dasgupta

**Publisher**: University of Manchester 2008**Number of pages**: 48

**Description**:

Presently, all observational evidence points to the fact that Quantum Field Theory (QFT) provides a good description of all known elementary particles, as well as for particle physics beyond the Standard Model for energies ranging up to the Planck scale. The scope of these lectures is to provide an introduction to the formalism of Quantum Field Theory.
