Introduction to quantum field theory. (English) Zbl 0197.53502
New York etc.: John Wiley and Sons, Inc. xvii, 634 p. (1969).
A standard treatise on quantum field theory.
Part 1 (Lagrangian field theory – 286 pages) deals with classical theory, canonical quantization (based on Schwinger’s action principle), interacting fields (general features), interaction picture (Feynman techniques and perturbation theory), propagator methods.
Part 2 (general field theory – 328 pages) gives a presentation of the following, more modern, topics: Lehmann-Symanzik-Zimmermann formalism, Wightman formalism, general properties of scattering amplitudes (crossing, unitary, analyticity), two-point functions, form factors, the idea of current-algebras.
