# 8.323 Relativistic Quantum Field Theory I

Class Info

A one-term self-contained subject in quantum field theory. Concepts and basic techniques are developed through applications in elementary particle physics, and condensed matter physics. Topics: classical field theory, symmetries, and Noether's theorem. Quantization of scalar fields, spin fields, and Gauge bosons. Feynman graphs, analytic properties of amplitudes and unitarity of the S-matrix. Calculations in quantum electrodynamics (QED). Introduction to renormalization.

This class has 8.321 as a prerequisite.

8.323 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by T. Slatyer.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 4-153.
