Written for undergraduates in their final year and graduate students in their initial year, this overview includes both theories and applications, including those in particle physics, cosmology, condensed matter, statistical mechanics and critical phenomena. Maggiore (physics, U. of Geneva) covers Lorentz and Poincare symmetries in quantum field theory, classical field theory, quantization of free fields, perturbation theory and Feynman diagrams, cross-section and decay rates, quantum electrodynamics, the low-energy limit of the electroweak theory, path integral quantization, non- abelian gauge theories, and spontaneous symmetry breaking. He provides lists of further reading and exercises for each chapter, with solutions. He also includes a very helpful full bibliography. Annotation © 2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
