The course will introduce Quantum Field Theory (QFT) by bringing together concepts from classical Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, quantum mechanics and special relativity. We will also introduce string theory as a simple two-dimensional QFT.

The book presents a rigorous treatment of the first principles of the algebraic and analytic core of quantum field theory. The authors address readers interested in fundamental mathematical physics and who have the training of a graduate student.

These notes introduce the subject of quantum field theory in curved spacetime and some of its applications and the questions they raise. Topics include particle creation in time-dependent metrics, quantum origin of primordial perturbations, etc.
