The importance and the beauty of modern quantum field theory resides in the power and variety of its methods and ideas, which find application in domains as different as particle physics, cosmology, condensed matter, statistical mechanics and critical phenomena. This book introduces the reader to the modern developments in a manner which assumes no previous knowledge of quantum field theory. Along with standard topics like Feynman diagrams, the book discusses effective lagrangians, renormalization group equations, the path integral formulation, spontaneous symmetry breaking and non-abelian gauge theories. The inclusion of more advanced topics will also make this a most useful book for graduate students and researchers.

Michele Maggiore is Professor of Physics at the University of Geneva in Switzerland.
All in all, Maggiore's approach is precisely the one that should be taken in an undergraduate course: Introduce the "big" ideas and leave the computational and thornier technical details for subsequent courses. * Physics Today * The author gives a nice conceptual discussion of divergences in loop amplitudes, the need to renormalize, and how both renormalization group...he manages to convey the main ideas without getting lost in technical details. * Physics Today * Aiming at graduate students, this novel textbook on the theory of quantum fields differs from any other existing books on the same subject since it focuses on the generality of its methods and ideas rather than on its power as a calculational tool. * Gert Roepstorff, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol 1078, 2006 *
