    Get this from a library! Path Integrals in Field Theory: an Introduction. [Ulrich Mosel] -- This short and concise textbook is intended as a primer on path integral formalism both in classical and quantum field theories, although emphasis is on the latter. It is ideally suited as an. subject. Some are books or articles wholly devoted to path integrals; the majority are books for which path integrals form only a small (but interesting!) part. The list is hopelessly incomplete; in particular, virtually any quantum eld theory book from the last decade or so has a discussion of path integrals in Size: KB.

    understandable text is M. Kaku™s Quantum Field Theory, although the notation is occasionally a tri⁄e bizarre (for example, he expresses the closure relation as jpi R dphpj = 1). If you™re desperate to learn QFT, and the above books are still over your head, then try A. Zee™s excellent book Quantum Field Theory in a Size: KB. Assuming a strong background in basic quantum mechanics and classical mechanics, Huang develops quantum field in a methodical fashion. In contrast to other popular quantum field theory books (such as Peskin) Huang doesn't leave out important details, especially with regard to the mathematics behind spinor fields. Plus the book is very readable.

The author introduces path integrals in pretty much the same way as Feynman and Hibbs did before in their celebrated book, and then proceeds to develop some methods to compute them. The emphasis on functional methods to approach a field theory make this book very interesting, covering topics like relativistic field theories and gauge theories/5(3).

Path Integrals in Field Theory paves the way for both more rigorous studies in fundamental mathematical issues as well as for applications in hadron, particle and nuclear physics, thus addressing students in mathematical and theoretical physics alike. Path integrals, which have become the ubiquitous means for quantization, are introduced late in the book.

Hence, if your goal is to understand QFT through the path integral formalism from the very beginning, this is not and it should not be your first by: The choice of topics included is main-stream and sensible and one has a clear sense that the author knows where he is going and is a reliable guide.

The list is hopelessly incomplete; in particular, virtually any quantum field theory book from the last decade or so has a discussion of path integrals. Traditionally, field theory is taught through canonical quantization with a heavy emphasis on high energy physics.

However, the techniques of field theory are applicable as well and are extensively used in various other areas of physics such as consdensed matter, nuclear physics and statistical mechanics.

The path integral approach brings out this feature most clearly.5/5(1).
