Introduction to Algebraic and Constructive Quantum Field Theory
by John C. Baez, Irving E. Segal, Zhengfang Zhou
Publisher: Princeton University Press 1992
Number of pages: 316
The authors present a rigorous treatment of the first principles of the algebraic and analytic core of quantum field theory. Their aim is to correlate modern mathematical theory with the explanation of the observed process of particle production and of particle-wave duality that heuristic quantum field theory provides. The authors address readers interested in fundamental mathematical physics and who have at least the training of an entering graduate student.

Presently, all observational evidence points to the fact that Quantum Field Theory provides a good description of all known elementary particles. The scope of these lectures is to provide an introduction to the formalism of Quantum Field Theory.

All particles in the standard model correspond to some field in a quantum field theory. Our task is to understand how this works, how to describe interactions of these particles using quantum field theory, and how to compute various processes.

An introduction to functional integral techniques and how they can be applied in practice. Though we focus on particle physics and cosmology applications, we emphasize that these techniques can be equally applied to other nonequilibrium phenomena.

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.
