However, due to the great difficulty of making reliable calculations, most such books contain many ‘formal’ equations which are widely understood to lack mathematical sense. Quantum field theory QFT is a theory of elementary particles combining quantum mechanics and special relativity.

The general structures underlying the conventional local renormalizable formulation of gauge QFT are discussed also on the basis of simple models. Excluding string theory, on which the jury is still out, QFT is the most fundamental and comprehensive theory of physics today, encompassing all known physics except gravity.


International Series of Monographs on Physics. In most presentations, the emphasis is on the effectiveness of the theory in producing experimentally testable predictions, which at present essentially means Perturbative QFT.

Quantum Field Theory QFT has proved to be the most useful strategy for the description of elementary particle interactions and as such is regarded as a fundamental part of modern theoretical physics. The mathematical precision has been reduced to a minimum in order to communicate the main ideas to a larger audience including those who are not mathematically meinded.

An Introduction to Non-Perturbative Foundations of Quantum Field Theory

The notion of spontaneous symmetry breaking has proven extremely valuable, the problem is that most derivations are perturbative and heuristic.


Frequently such difficulties are due to the use of perturbation theory with questionable convergence properties. Strocchi’s book exactly fulfils this last requirement. Description The new edition of this well received primer on rigorous aspects of symmetry stroccho presents a more detailed and thorough discussion of the mechanism strocvhi symmetry breaking in classical field theory in relation with the Noether theorem.
