**Advanced Topics in Effective Field Theory**

by Andrew E. Blechman

**Publisher**: University of Toronto 2008**Number of pages**: 77

**Description**:

This text will help students fill the gap of knowledge between the QFT courses students take when they start graduate work in theoretical physics, and actual research. The book covers the basics of three vitally important techniques used in modern theoretical physics research: spontaneous symmetry breaking, effective field theory and the renormalization group.
