Advanced Topics in Quantum Field Theory by M. Shifman

By M. Shifman

because the introduction of Yang-Mills theories and supersymmetry within the Nineteen Seventies, quantum box thought - the foundation of the fashionable description of actual phenomena on the primary point - has passed through progressive advancements. this is often the 1st systematic and finished textual content committed in particular to trendy box idea, bringing readers to the innovative of present examine. The booklet emphasizes nonperturbative phenomena and supersymmetry. It contains a thorough dialogue of varied stages of gauge theories, prolonged gadgets and their quantization, and international supersymmetry from a latest standpoint. that includes large cross-referencing from conventional themes to contemporary breakthroughs within the box, it prepares scholars for self reliant examine. The aspect packing containers summarizing the most effects and over 70 workouts make this an essential ebook for graduate scholars and researchers in theoretical physics.
