## Introduction to Quantum Field Theory

### Further Reading

There is a large number of textbooks on Quantum Field Theory, and all
cover the basic material at different levels of intelligibility, and
much more than can be covered in this course. The general level and approach
is best captured by

*Quantum Field Theory* by L H Ryder (Cambridge University Press, 1996)
47.50 GPB
*Quantum Field Theory: from Operators to Path Integrals* by K Huang
(Wiley, 1998) 73 GPB(!)
*Quantum Field Theory* by M Srednicki (Cambridge University Press,
2007) 35 GBP (an excellent up-to-date introduction with a particle physics bias).
*Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell* by A Zee (Princeton University
Press, 2003) 38.50 GBP (an excellent introduction with both the particle and condensed
matter in mind).

For those looking for more advanced inspirational reading I would recommend
in particle physics:

*An Introduction to Quantum Field Theory* by M Peskin and D Schroeder
(Addison-Wesley 2008) 41 GPB

and in condensed matter

*Quantum Field Theory of Many-Body Systems* by X-G Wen (Oxford 2007)
24 GBP
