# Quantum Field Theory II - II 2017

Professor
Gustavo Burdman

Dept. of
Mathematical Physics – Room 316

Classes:
Wednesday and Friday, 10h at Room 206, Ala 2 Ed. Principal

I will not follow one textbook. At times I will be
taking material from a specific book, which I will point
out. But I hope to provide a good set of lecture notes
(see below).

Here is a list of books that I find useful, some of
which have material I will present in class:

*"An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory”, M. E.
Peskin and D. V. Schroeder; *

"*Quantum Field
Theory”, Itzykson and Zuber; *

“The Quantum Theory of Fields I and II”, S. Weinberg;

"Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell", A. Zee;

"Modern Quantum Field Theory", T. Banks;

"Condensed Matter Field Theory", Altland and Simons;

"Advanced Quantum Field Theory", M. Shifman;

"Dynamics of the Standard Model", J. Donoghue, E.
Golowich and B. Holstein;

"Quantum Field Theory", M. Srednicki.
