Inhaltsangabe: The fundamental goal of physics is an understanding of the forces of nature in their simplest and most general terms. Yet the scientific method inadver tently steers us away from that course by requiring an ever finer subdivision of the problem into constituent components, so that the overall objective is often obscured, even to the experts. The situation is most frustrating and acute for today's graduate students, who must try to absorb as much general knowledge as is possible and also try to digest only a sm all fraction of the ever increasing morass of observational data or detailed theories to write a dissertation. This book is based on the premise that to study a subject in depth is only half the battle; the remaining struggle is to put the pieces together in a broad but comprehensive manner. Accordingly, the primary purpose of this text is to cut across the barriers existing between the various fields ofmodern physics (elementary particles; nuclear, atomic, and solid state physics; gravitation) and present a unified description of the quantum nature of forces encountered in each field at the level of the second-year physics graduate student. This unification is based on one-body perturbation techniques, covariantly generalized to what are now called "Feynman diagrams," and is formulated aS,a simple (but nontriv ial) extension of ordinary nonrelativistic, one-particle quantum theory.
Inhaltsangabe: The goal of this textbook is to understand the forces of nature in their simplest and most general terms. It begins in Part 1 with a detailed discussion of transformation theory, which is used by the author to formulate advanced quantum theory in group-theoretical language. Part 2 deals with scattering theory and includes many applications to nuclear, atomic, and solid-state physics. The central theme of the book, however, is presented in Part 3: relativistic Feynman diagrams. The student learns to use them in a most natural way and will find a thorough discussion of the lowest-order electromagnetic, strong, weak, and gravitational interactions. The last chapter deals with the finite parts of higher-order graphs in field theory and dispersion theory. In the second edition errors have been eliminated and the text has been enhanced with the inclusion of new sections on the quark model.
