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 not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by H. Liu.

Lecture occurs 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 6-120.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
