Chisholm, R. S. Farwell, R. S. Farwell. This is the second volume of the third edition of a successful text, now substantially enlarged and updated to reflect developments over the last decade in the curricula of university courses and in particle physics research. Volume I covered relativistic quantum mechanics, electromagnetism as a gauge theory, and introductory quantum field theory, and ended with the formulation and .

The book thus serves as both a solid and an enticing introduction to the mathematics required for the geometric formulation of gauge theory.

      Abstract. Quantum field theory is the basic tool to understand the physics of the elementary constituents of matter. It is both a very powerful and a very precise framework: using it we can describe physical processes in a range of energies going from the few millions electrovolts typical of nuclear physics to the thousands of billions of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).Cited by: 3.   This book consists of the lectures for a two-semester course on quantum field theory, and as such is presented in a quite informal and personal manner. The course starts with relativistic one-particle systems, and develops the basics of quantum field theory with an analysis of the representations of the Poincaré group.
