Classical Field Theory
by Gleb Arutyunov
Publisher: Utrecht University 2011
Number of pages: 158
The aim of the course is to introduce the basic methods of classical field theory and to apply them in a variety of physical models ranging from classical electrodynamics to macroscopic theory of ferromagnetism. In particular, the course will cover the Lorentz-covariant formulation of Maxwell's electromagnetic theory, advanced radiation problems, the Ginzburg-Landau theory of superconductivity, hydrodynamics of ideal liquids, the Navier-Stokes equation and elements of soliton theory.

We provide an introduction to conformal field theory on the plane in the conformal bootstrap approach. We introduce the bootstrap approach to quantum field theory, and how they apply to two-dimensional theories with local conformal symmetry.

These lecture notes are devoted to the theory of equations of associativity describing geometry of moduli spaces of 2D topological field theories. Topics: WDVV equations and Frobenius manifolds; Polynomial solutions of WDVV; Symmetries of WDVV; etc.
by Warren Siegel
It covers classical and quantum field theory, including many recent topics at an introductory yet nontrivial level: supersymmetry, general relativity, supergravity, strings, 1/N expansion in QCD, spacecone, many useful gauges, etc.
