40473 Quantenfeldtheorie II P24.1.a

The course will be taught by Prof. Dirk Kreimer.

Mo 11 – 13, RUD25 1’012, 2’101 Tue 15 – 17,RUD25, 1’012
Exercises and Lecture in a bi-weekly pattern
Accompanying tutorial (not mandatory)
WED 13 – 15, RUD25, tbd.
The tutorium starts Wednesday, April 25 with a discussion of possible topics.

Topics as in 2014.

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.

Please read ‘Pokorski: Gauge Field Theories’ Ch.3 (Feynman Rules for Yang–Mills Theories) before mid June.

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