      textbooks are available on the E-book Directory. Algebra. Algebraic Number Theory by Robin Chapman; Invitation to higher local fields by Ivan Fesenko, Quantum Field : Kevin de Asis.   In these lectures we present a few topics in Quantum Field Theory in detail. Some of them are conceptual and some more practical. They have been selected because they appear frequently in current applications to Particle Physics and String Theory.

    Book Description. The Only Undergraduate Textbook to Teach Both Classical and Virtual Knot Theory. An Invitation to Knot Theory: Virtual and Classical gives advanced undergraduate students a gentle introduction to the field of virtual knot theory and mathematical research. It provides the foundation for students to research knot theory and read journal articles on their own.   As a beginner with a moderate understanding of quantum mechanics, special relativity and tensor formulation of classical field theories like electrodynamics but not necessarily general relativity, one may choose to start with a concise and novice.

    The book gives an exposition of the relations among the following three topics: monoidal tensor categories (such as a category of representations of a quantum group), 3-dimensional topological quantum field theory, and 2-dimensional modular functors. in this book. Quantum field theory has a reputation as a subject that is hard to learn. The problem, I think, is not so much that its basic ingredients are unusually difficult to master (indeed, the conceptual shift needed to go from quantum mechanics to quantum field theory is not nearly as severe.

For this fresh approach. section Fundamentals of Quantum Field Theory. In this part, in the rst three chapters I write about scalar elds, elds with spin, and non-abelian elds. The following chapters are dedicated to quantum electrodynamics and quantum chromodynamics, followed by the renormalization theory.

The second part is dedicated to Topological Field Theories. The book by Zee, Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell, is good for someone with background on gravity and condense matter, but will mess up the beginner's mind with bombarding of variety of topic. I personally suggest, Ashok Das, Ryder, and Mandel & Shaw.

"[This] is an excellent invitation to the wide area of modern quantum field theory, and even provides the mature field theoretician with interesting insights and connections. To the curious student, it is a near-perfect companion to spice up the world of quantum field theory, especially particle physics, beyond the standard presentations/5(41).

"The book seems to be ideally designed for a semester course or ambitious self-study." —Mathematical Reviews "The book is intended to be a friendly introduction to quantum cohomology.

It makes the reader acquainted with the notions of stable curves and stable maps, and their moduli spaces.

These notions are central in the field. Quantum field theory is the result of the combination of classical field theory, quantum mechanics, and special relativity.: xi A brief overview of these theoretical precursors is in order.

The earliest successful classical field theory is one that emerged from Newton's law of universal gravitation, despite the complete absence of the concept of fields from his treatise Philosophiæ. Quantum field theory is the basic mathematical framework that is used to describe elementary particles.

This textbook provides a complete and essential introduction to the subject.

This theory will explain the origin of ultraviolet divergences in field theory and will indicate when these divergences can be removed systematically.
