Overview

Consists of three main objectives: to explain the basic physics and formalism of quantum field theory, to make readers totally proficient in theory calculations using Feynman diagrams, to introduce gauge theories which play a major role in elementary particle physics. This revision contains developments of W and Z bosons and their implications, updated references and an improved treatment of dimensional regularization.
