Mo 11 – 13, NEW 15, 2’101 Wed 11 – 13, NEW 15, 2’101
Exercises and Lecture in a bi-weekly pattern
Accompanying tutorial (not mandatory)
Fr 11 – 13, RUD 25, 3’006.
We start Friday, April 25 with a discussion of possible topics.

June 06 David Prinz and Benedikt Kolbe ‘CPT’
June 20 or July 04 Lucas Delage ‘Dim Reg’


In the first half of the course, we cover renormalization, multi-loop integrals and non-perturbative aspects,
in the second half we cover quantized gauge fields with non-abelian gauge groups.

Literature: a good textbook for physicists is ‘Pokorski: Gauge Field Theories’ (Cambridge UP).
