Introduction to Quantum Field Theory with Applications to Quantum Gravity

Iosif L. Buchbinder and Ilya Shapiro

Abstract

This book focuses on quantum field theory and its application to gravitational physics, in both semiclassical and full quantum frameworks, with special attention paid to renormalization, gauge theories and, especially, effective action formalism. Part I provides both conceptual and technical introductions to quantum field theory, starting from elements of group theory, through classical fields, up to effective action formalism in general gauge theories. Compared to other books on this topic, this book describes the general formalism of renormalization in more detail and pays more attention to ... More

Keywords: quantum field, renormalization, curved spacetime, effective action, quantum gravity
