This subject introduces quantum field theory, a combination of classical field theory, special relativity, and quantum mechanics. The study of this discipline allows the student to understand the fundamental structure of matter and the physics of the early Universe.
The intended learning outcomes are advanced knowledge of the basic ideas of quantum field theory; knowledge of how quantum mechanics and special relativity combine to produce realistic theories of particle creation and annihilation; advanced knowledge in calculation techniques to at least the level of tree-level Feynman diagrams for quantum electrodynamics; acquisition of foundation for more advanced studies in Standard Model theory.
