Functional Methods 1. Renormalization Group: equations and solutions 6.
It is recommended to have followed the Introductory course of Quantum Field Theory to have the basic notions necessary to follow this course. Naturally all prerequisites of the Introductory Quantum Field Theory course also apply here, namely, Classical Mechanics, Classical Electrodynamics and Quantum Mechanics introductory and advanced.
Peskin and D. Objectives The main purpose of this course is twofold. Skills Formulate and tackle problems, both open and more defined, identifying the most relevant principles and using approaches where necessary to reach a solution, which should be presented with an explanation of the suppositions and approaches.
Examples including the simple harmonic oscillator. Formulation of perturbation theory, and Feynman diagram representation. Introduction to Grassmann numbers. Green functions: LSZ reduction formulae for scalar and Dirac fields.
This is a concise graduate level introduction to analytical functional methods in quantum field theory. Functional integral methods provide relatively simple. Cambridge Core - Particle Physics and Nuclear Physics - Path Integral Methods in Quantum Field Theory - by R. J. Rivers.
Green functions. Perturbation theory and derivation of Feynman rules. Generating functionals for disconnected and connected Green functions.
Last edited by a moderator: May 8, I don't see in this book or any other place deriving showing the relation between these representations, they only tell you "the results come out to be the same". Could that be because getting the same results is the only relation between the representations? Neumaier Science Advisor.

Gold Member. In many cases, identical results are worked out in each representation to emphasize the representation-independent structures of quantum field theory" Yet I don't see in this book or any other place deriving showing the relation between these representations, they only tell you "the results come out to be the same".
It sound very strange for me that the physicists write exuberant amounts of paper piles, yet they don't deal with fundamentals like that. Dirac's original work on QT answered this question.
The correspondence for relativistic QFT is given by eg. If one constructs a path integral theory satisfying such axioms, then one knows the corresponding quantum theory satisfying the Wightmann axioms exists. Rigourous relativistic QFTs in 2 and 3 spacetime dimensions have been constructed by such methods. I have read many textbooks. If you cannot derive all of the above, then you should consider reading more texts.
I appreciate some references that you could recommend. It is in my opinion the best book ever written on path integral for both mathematicians and physicists.
