Relativistic quantum mechanics and quantum field theory / V. Devanathan.

By: Devanathan, V.
Publisher: New Delhi : Narosa pub., c2011Description: xv, 256 p. : illustrations ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9788184871029.Subject(s): Relativistic quantum theory | Quantum field theoryDDC classification: 530.12
Contents:
1. Introduction -- 2. The Dirac equation and its solutions -- 3. The propagation Kernel and Feynman diagrams -- 4. Quantum electrodynamics -- 5. Radiative corrections -- 6. Elements of quantum field theory -- 7. The scalar fields -- 8. The Dirac field -- 9. The electromagnetic field -- 10. Interaction between fields -- 11. Recent developments-- Appendices-- Bibliography-- Subject index.
Summary: Deals with the single particle relativistic wave equations and the elements of quantum field theory. In this book, how the quantum field theory is stretched beyond quantum electrodynamics to include electro weak interactions and strong interactions and how it leads to the formulation of the standard model of elementary particles are discussed.
