**Quantum Field Theory**

Level: First year graduate student

Recommended prerequisites: Quantum mechanics, special relativity, classical mechanics, all at the upper-division undergraduate level.

**Course Description**

An introduction to and introduction of quantum field theory. This course

will cover what would typically be covered in the first course of a year

long sequence of courses at a university. At the end of this course, one

should be able to understand the field content of a Lagrangian, understand

the interactions dictated by the theory, and calculate tree level

processes of the theory.

**Course topic lecture plan:**

1. Free scalar and fermion fields in QFT.

2. Interactions and tree level matrix elements.

3. Feynman diagrams and scatter processes.

4. Vector fields, gauge symmetries, and path integral formulations.

We hope to see you at the lectures.

Sincerely,

Your GAPS committee
