PEP 754 Advanced Quantum Mechanics

This course is an introduction to relativistic quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. Relativistic wave equations, including the Klein-Gordon equation and the Dirac equation. Commutation relation and canonical quantization of free fields. Spin and statistics of Bose and Fermi fields. Interacting quantum fields: interaction representation and S-matrix perturbation theory, Feynman diagrams, and renormalization theory with applications to quantum electrodynamics. Typical texts: Advanced Quantum Mechanics by J. J. Sakurai and Quantum Field Theory by F. Mandl and G. Shaw.
