18.238 Geometry and Quantum Field Theory


Class Info

A rigorous introduction designed for mathematicians into perturbative quantum field theory, using the language of functional integrals. Basics of classical field theory. Free quantum theories. Feynman diagrams. Renormalization theory. Local operators. Operator product expansion. Renormalization group equation. The goal is to discuss, using mathematical language, a number of basic notions and results of QFT that are necessary to understand talks and papers in QFT and string theory.
