From Special Relativity to Feynman Diagrams: A Course of Theoretical Particle Physics for Beginners (UNITEXT / Collana di Fisica e Astronomia)
Shared By Guest
The first two chapters of the book deal, in a detailed way, with relativistic kinematics and dynamics, while in the third chapter some elementary concepts of General Relativity are given. The Author of this Book is Mario Trigiante, Riccardo D'Auria Eventually, after an introduction to tensor calculus, a Lorentz covariant formulation of electromagnetism is given its quantization is developed. Array ISBN . For a proper treatment of invariance and conservation laws in physics, an introductory chapter on group theory is given. From Special Relativity to Feynman Diagrams: A Course of Theoretical Particle Physics for Beginners (UNITEXT / Collana di Fisica e Astronomia) available in English. This introduction is propedeutical to the discussion of conservation laws in the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism, which will allow us to export this formalism to quantum mechanics and, in particular, to introduce linear operators on quantum states and their transformation laws. In the last part of the book we analyze, in the first quantized formalism, relativistic field theory for both boson and fermion fields. The second quantization of free fields is then introduced and some preliminary concepts of perturbation theory and Feynmann diagrams are given and some relevant examples are worked out.
