Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

We give an introduction into relativistic quantum field theory, QFT as a low energy description of systems with infinitely many degrees of freedom, we describe interaction and Feynman diagrams in QED using propagator theory, we introduce symmetries and the gauge principle , we discuss spontanous symmetry breaking for the Higgs mechanism of Yang-Mills fields and in the context of condensed matter physics (superfluidity and superconductivity), we give an introduction into QCD and into the standard model of electroweak interactions.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The aim is get familiar with the mathematical formalism of relativistic quantum fields, of gauge theories, the modern theories of theoretical physics, in particular in the view of recent developments, the lectures are suited for future students in particle physics as well as condensed matter physics.

Examination topics

Mathematics of theoretical physics

Reading list

Will be announced in the lecture.
