I on the other hand enjoyed Itzykson & Zuber’s textbook. It was very clear, . Real men learn QFT from the collected works of Julian Schwinger. Itzykson C., Zuber J.B., Quantum field theory. One of my personal This book will teach you that there is another way to do QFT. One that is. C. Itzykson and J.-B.

For David Tong’s notes, if you want the full classroom experience, Perimeter Institute of a whole series of video lectures of him teaching what the notes cover: What is a complete book for introductory quantum field theory?
New Quantum Field Theory Textbook
It’s just an introduction, but I found http: I don’t understand why people like Srednicki’s book. Debates and discussions on all topics related to physics are welcome. The one I recommend, and the one I wish it had been recommended to me is:. Want to add to the discussion?
New Quantum Field Theory Textbook | Not Even Wrong
It’s the kind of thing you want to read for the first time. I’m taking a look at this book now, and my first impression is that it’s both condensed and clear. I highly recommend the book for anyone who wants to seriously learn quantum field theory.
This is a very long and thorough book, which contains material that cannot easily be found elsewhere. Encouraged in weekly threads Conceptual and closed-ended questions Due to a high volume of such questions, they are consolidated in weekly Physics Questions threads. The book by Zee, Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshellis good for someone with background on gravity and condense matter, but zubeg mess up the beginner’s mind with bombarding of variety of topic.
I hope this list itzykso prove useful to some people. It will walk you through several important topics, but it won’t in general get your hands dirty with the details. Wightman, PCT, spin and statistics and all that.
Great notes to read at least once, but don’t expect to learn everything there is to know there; they are meant as an introduction. This entry was posted in Book Reviews. Years ago I first learned quantum field theory from both T.

I’ve got two recommendations: And in the summer shorts and a t-shirt. But some people do love the book, so to each their own. For further reading Tong’s string theory notes are great and the other part 3 particle physics notes are also pretty good: The title is somewhat misleading. I really didn’t care for how Peskin and Schroeder is laid out, and yeah, Ramond’s is hard What are the main conflictive points of usual QFT beyond renormalization of course?
And there are many of my fellow grad students in particle theory at my institution and others who swear by Srednicki.
We aim to be a welcoming place for both academics and the general public, and as such posts with no basis in the current understanding of physics are not allowed as they might serve to misinform. Permian I’ve only had a very superficial look at that book, and I can’t really say I’m a fan of the style. Textbook requests Questions about textbook recommendations should be posted in the weekly Textbook and Resource threads.
Not an introduction, but once you’re a guru it is supposedly the place to go. In any case, the underlying point is that for geometry and tensors one must have a index-based book and a index-free one.
