The importance and the beauty of modern quantum field theory resides in the power and variety quantmu its methods and ideas, which find application in domains as different as particle physics, cosmology, condensed matter, statistical mechanics and critical phenomena.
This book introduces the reader to the modern developments, assuming no previous knowledge of quantum field theory. Along with standard topics like Feynman diagrams, the book discusses effective lagrangians, renormalization group equations, the path integral formulation, spontaneous symmetry breaking and non-abelian gauge theories.
The inclusion of more advanced topics will moden make this a most useful book for graduate students and researchers. Maggoire more Read less. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids.

Maggiore’s style is terse, so expect making progress one paragraph at a time. The good news is that rereading helps. Again this is unlike the above mentioned two classics where you can reread some sections all you want and still would not make progress. Five star is compared to other QFT books and does not imply this book is perfect. The binding comes out after some use, I found chapter 1 to be unnecessary, wish some topics were explained in more detail and wanted the Standard Model to be discussed at the end.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The other reviewer is right that the kindle edition is well put together. No tiny equations or rampant misprints, though there are some typos. Maggiore is an excellent educator and knows how to explain things.
The book is on the short side at under pages and it felt a little like a crash course in representation theory at the beginning. I feel however that I received a very solid foundation to the subject from this book and am glad I started with Maggiore.
I hope they do. This book is the quickest way to learn a lot of qft at a deep level. If you are an advanced undergraduate taken all the required undergrad courses and have sufficient math background that is wanting to learn QFT, this is the best resource.
If you tried reading peskin, but couldn’t get past the first few pages of chapter 2, check this book out. I found it a pleasure to read, and all the concepts were explained in a way that I found to be the most comprehensible.
Additionally it has solutions to all the problems in the book. I suppose the only downside of this book is that there is not a lot of material which is both a strength and a weakness. Because the book is so small it’s less intimidating, but at the same time a lot of advanced material is left out e.
For a grad course the book could be covered in a semester. I highly recommend this book dield start off learning qft. I agree with all the theoey 5 star reviews, this is a great book as an intro to QFT. The equations are very readable, as is the text. One person found this helpful. With this excellent book the path that a cultivated layman should follow introduftion fulfill his noble attempt to familiarize himself with QFT is firmly traced.
Having done so, in a Landau scale 1 to 10, he will now be at level 9. He should then read Maggiore’s book aiming for an incomparably deeper understanding of the field that will catapult him to level 5 keep in mind that Landau placed himself at level three!
It is however apparent that the author has done the best as also maggiors the sections concerning Noether’s theorem, Spinor fields and Dirac Equation, Lehmann-Symanzik-Zimmermann -reduction formula, Path Integral Quantization At the aimed level of the book I think that it was a good idea to limit the discussions to the low energy approximation of the electroweak theory, and to expound only the two main ingredients of the Standard Model, namely Yang-Mills theories and the Higgs mechanism.
The best introductory book on the field in my opinion. Great book that cuts out a lot of the tediousness of QFT in other books hteory focuses on the mathematical structure of QFT. Perhaps not ideal for a phenomenologist or experimentalist, but quite satisfying as a theorist.
A Modern Introduction to Quantum Field Theory by Michele Maggiore
My one gripe with the book is that the fields are not wave functions. He continuously refers to phi, psi and A as “wave functions” throughout the entire book. This is completely wrong. They are just fields. QFT has a wave function even if it’s intdoduction used. QFT changes nothing about that.

Calling phi, psi and A wave functions just contributes to the confusion most students have as separating those two ideas is hard enough as it is for rookies to QFT. See all 13 reviews.
