About the Authors
  • In The Quantum Theory of Fields Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg combines his exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition to provide a self-contained, comprehensive, and up-to-date introduction to quantum field theory. Volume II gives an up-to-date and self-contained account of the methods of quantum field theory, and how they have led to an understanding of the weak, strong, and electromagnetic interactions of the elementary particles. The presentation of modern mathematical methods is throughout interwoven with accounts of the problems of elementary particle physics and condensed matter physics to which they have been applied. Problems are included at the end of each chapter.

    • In The Quantum Theory of Fields, Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg combines his exceptional physical insight with his gift for clear exposition to provide a self-contained, comprehensive, and up-to-date introduction to quantum field theory
    • A fresh and logical approach to this core topic, containing much original material, and peppered with examples, insights, and anecdotes drawn from the author's experience as a leader of elementary particle research
    • A very well-known and successful author, whose previous publications include Gravitation and Cosmology (1972), The First Three Minutes (1977), Discovery of Subatomic Particles (1982) and Dreams of a Final Theory (1993).
    • An invaluable reference work for all physicists and mathematicians who use quantum field theory, as well as a textbook appropriate to graduate courses on quantum field theory

    Reviews & endorsements

    "I would recommend it to students who have completed a first course in field theory and hope that many of my colleagues will read it as well. Weinberg leads us to a frontier rich in possibilities. This is an optimistic book, written with much respect for ideas and nature-- and for tools." Chris Quigg, Science

    "This book and its companion volume are sure to find a place on the desk of every researcher and serious student of quantum field theory." Thomas Kephart, American Association of Physics Teachers

    "...a well-nigh perfect exhibition of the present-day state of the subject. I cannot give the volumes high enough marks and I am sure that Cambridge University Press is on to a winner here!" R. Delbourgo, Mathematical Reviews

    "...without doubt goes far beyond the ambition of providing a quick calculational receipe book....The Quantum Theory of Fields is a serious scholarly attempt to lift "Life a little above the level of farce." Foundations of Physics Letters

    "Lucidly Written." Contemporary Physics, J. Hartley
