Quantum Field Theory, 9780070320710 (0070320713), McGraw-Hill, 1987

Quantum field theory has remained throughout the years one of the most important tools in understanding the microscopic world. The recent years have seen a blossoming of developments and applications which go far beyond the original scope.

Our attempt at presenting a pedagogical survey of this subject arose from lectures given in Orsay and Saclay, and first materialized in a set of notes written in French. As with any such endeavor it reflects to a large extent our prejudices and enthusiasms, even though we have tried to be as thorough as possible and to keep a balance between the formalism and practical examples of calculations. In its present version this book addresses itself both to students and researchers in field theory, particle physics, and related areas. It presupposes a general background in quantum mechanics, electrodynamics, and relativity, and assumes some familiarity with classical calculus including group theory and complex analysis.

To avoid one-sided views, we have respected the historical perspective and given equal weight to the operator formulation, propagator approach, and more synthetic path integral representation. Nevertheless, this is by no means a complete treatise. We list some of the main omissions. For lack of space and because we felt incompetent we do not treat axiomatic field theory and critical phenomena in statistical mechanics. Specific topics such as a detailed study of the Poincare group and its representations, higher spin fields, a thorough discussion of infrared problems, gravitational interactions, two-dimensional models, etc., could not be discussed here.

Stream Data Management (Advances in Database Systems)
Stream Data Management (Advances in Database Systems)

Researchers in data management have recently recognized the importance of a new class of data-intensive applications that requires managing data streams, i.e., data composed of continuous, real-time sequence of items. Streaming applications pose new and interesting challenges for data management systems. Such application domains require queries...

Data Streams: Algorithms and Applications (Foundations and Trends in Theoretical Computer Science)
Data Streams: Algorithms and Applications (Foundations and Trends in Theoretical Computer Science)
Data stream algorithms as an active research agenda emerged only over the past few years, even though the concept of making few passes over the data for performing computations has been around since the early days of Automata Theory. The data stream agenda now pervades many branches of Computer Science including databases, networking, knowledge...
Theory of Relativity
Theory of Relativity

THIRTY-FIVE years ago this article on the theory of relativity, written by me at the rather young age of 21 years for the Mathematical Encyclopedia, was first published as a separate monograph together with a preface by Sommerfeld, who as the editor of this volume of the Encyclopedia was responsible for my authorship. It was the aim of the...


An Introduction to Tensor Calculus, Relativity and Cosmology
An Introduction to Tensor Calculus, Relativity and Cosmology
This elementary introduction pays special attention to aspects of tensor calculus and relativity that students tend to find most difficult. Its use of relatively unsophisticated mathematics in the early chapters allows readers to develop their confidence within the framework of Cartesian coordinates before undertaking the theory of tensors in...
Programming Finite Elements in Java
Programming Finite Elements in Java

The finite element method (FEM) is a computational technique for solving problems which are described by partial differential equations or which can be formulated as functional minimization. The FEM is commonly used in the design and development of products, especially where structural analysis is involved. The simple object model of the...

Geometric Computing: for Wavelet Transforms, Robot Vision, Learning, Control and Action

Geometric algebra (GA) is a powerful new mathematical system for computational geometry. Although its origins can be traced back to Hermann Grassmann (1844), its development as a language for space–time geometry with applications to all of physics did not begin until 1966. Suddenly, in the year 2000 it was recognized that a specialized...
