We describe Feynman's path integral approach to quantum mechanics and quantum field theory from a functional integral point of view, where focus lies in Euclidean field theory. Gaussian measure and the construction of the Wiener measure are covered.

These notes offer a lightening introduction to topological quantum field theory in its functorial axiomatisation assuming no or little prior exposure. We highlight the algebraic formulation emerging from a formal generators-and-relations description.

These notes are an expanded version of lectures given in 2010. The aim is to provide a practical introduction to quantum field theory in curved spacetime and related black hole physics, with AdS / CFT as the loose motivation.
