Path Integral Quantum Field Theory

August - November '13

This semester, just to get started, we will be discussing the path integral approach to quantum field theory, with the occasional jaunt around the maypole of condensed matter and statistical physics. This is mostly textbook stuff, so nothing fancy.

We meet almost every Saturday at 6:00 PM in Hall 123.
