Ph 205 Relativistic Quantum Mechanics
is a 3-quarter course covering basic quantum field theory, including QED,
renormalization, path-integrals, and Yang-Mills theory.
Required: Mark Srednicki, Quantum Field Theory,
Recommended: Steven Weinberg, The Quantum Theory of Fields, vols. 1,2, Cambridge University Press.
My office is 451 Lauritsen. My office hour is on Tuesday, 2:30-3:30 p.m.
TA: Ketan Vyas, 471 Lauritsen. Ketan’s office hour is on Monday, 2:30-3:30 p.m.
There will be no exams; instead there will be a homework problem set each week. It will be posted on this website each Wednesday and will be due a week later. Homework should be given directly to the TA or left in his mailbox (4th floor of Lauritsen, next to 452 Lauritsen). The TA will produce solution sets; you will find them outside of my office. Graded homework will be placed there as well. Grading will be done on the basis of the homework. If you need an extension, you should ask me in advance; without an extension late homework will not be graded.
