Advanced quantum field theory

Contact: T. Krajewski

Interdisciplinary course, to be accessible to students in various fields (condensed matter, elementary particles, gravitation and cosmology) with interest in renormalization.

  • Length scales in physics
  • Critical phenomena, Landau-Ginzburg theory
  • Wilson’s renormalisation group approach
  • Path integrals and Feynman rules
  • Fixed points and asymptotic behavior
  • General ideas on effective field theories
