Quantum Field Theory Study Resources. Need some extra Quantum Field Theory help? Course Hero has everything you need to master any concept and ace your next test from course notes, Quantum Field Theory study guides and expert Tutors, available 247. Course Description. From the UCSD course catalogue: The first quarter of a threequarter course on field theory and elementary particle physics. Topics covered include the relation between symmetries and conservation laws, the calculation of cross sections and reaction rates, covariant perturbation theory, and quantum electrodynamics.
This document is the syllabus for the whole course as taught in the academic years (i. e.396K taught in Fall 2011 and again in Fall 2012, and 396L taught in Spring 2013) by Dr. Vadim Kaplunovsky.
