My belief is that one should have as many QFT books as possible because different ways of expressing the same theory help one in understanding. If I recall, it starts with a description of field theory from bed springs. Brown is professor emeritus at a local school UW , and his text is used there.
We should put together a list of guage theory books, and for those of us who have tasted the poison, string theory texts. Perhaps the motivation to go to escape towards strings? I wished the Bjorken Drell were scanned somewhere, or at least cheaply reprinted. Besides Schwinger, also some frenchies were into the source theory. A young Kastler, I believe. But they are better at Critical Phenomena. Zinn-Justin and Le Bellac. For Schwinger action plainly, the Dyson lectures. DMS — I highly recommend the Maggiore book, if for no other reason than the worked problems.
It is needlessly too complicated in parts especially early on in Volume 1 , but has excellent, modern discussion of various topics.

Plus, it has the classic references, and is very to up-to-date Weinberg having conferred with the experts on the topics. Even though his third volume on SUSY is not as complete, I found his discussion very well explained despite his notation. Plus, you cannot beat the price!
I am not aware if it available online. So forgive me a few questions. Is it easier? Does prof.
I would recommend this book to any first-timer. Off topic, but regular readers of this blog will want to see this exchange, where string theorist Eva Silverstein schools Lubos Motl for his overreliance on straw man arguments. Reviews Errata. Not Even Wrong. Skip to content.

The Problem Book in Quantum Field Theory contains about problems with solutions or hints that help students to improve their understanding and develop skills necessary for pursuing the subject. It deals with the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations, classical field theory, canonical quantization of scalar, Dirac and electromagnetic fields, the processes in the lowest order of perturbation theory, renormalization and regularization.

The solutions are presented in a systematic and complete manner. The material covered and the level of exposition make the book appropriate for graduate and undergraduate students in physics, as well as for teachers and researchers. Each Chapter begins with a short introduction aimed to de?
Chapters 2, 3 and 4 deal with the re- tivistic quantum mechanics with a special emphasis on the Dirac equation. In Chapter 5 we present problems related to the Euler-Lagrange equations and the Noether theorem. The KleinGordon equation.
The Dirac equation. Classical field theory and symmetries. Canonical quantization of the scalar field. Canonical quantization of the Dirac field.
