Overview

Introduction to Gauge Field Theory provides comprehensive coverage of modern relativistic quantum field theory, emphasizing the details of actual calculations rather than the phenomenology of the applications.
Forming a foundation in the subject, the book assumes knowledge of relativistic quantum mechanics, but not of quantum field theory. The book is ideal for graduate students, advanced undergraduates, and researchers in the field of particle physics.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Errors from the first edition have been corrected. New material on instantons and axions has been included, and some of the calculations in chapters 12 and 16 have been updated to make use of the more precise values of gauge coupling and constants now available. The authors discuss path integrals, classical field theory, quantum field theory of scalar field, Feynman rules, renormalization, fermions, spontaneous symmetry breaking, electroweak theory, and the grand unified theory. Contains exercises. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
