5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally a REAL Introduction 24 avril 2013
Par John Drummond - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
After attempting to learn from several QFT textbooks, I came to realize that there were innumerable occasions when the authors seemed to gloss-over completely new/unfamiliar concepts because they apparently regarded them as "trivial" or "obvious." But what seemed trivial to them often left me scratching my head, trying to logically tie one equation to the next and arrive at their conclusion. Most books also tend to omit tedious, yet fundamental, calculations that would be a real pain for a new student to try to work out.

I started with the classics ("Peskin and Schroeder," "Bjorken and Drell"), but they seemed to almost require previous knowledge of QFT to make any sense of them, as if they were intended more as an encyclopedia than an introduction to a new subject. I tried Zee's book next, but realized that his unconventional approach (teaching the path integral formulation before the canonical formulation) made it very hard to simultaneously learn from other texts. He also tends to be sloppy with his math, and often left me more confused than anything. The closest I got to a good introduction was Srednicki's book, but it too was hard to follow at times.

By chance I stumbled across Klauber's website and read the first chapter of his book, expecting to be left confused as usual. To the contrary, what I had been struggling to understand for months suddenly snapped into place. I immediately read the rest of the free chapters, and when I finished those I ordered the book as soon as it appeared on amazon.

I've heard it said a dozen or so times that QFT has an extremely steep learning curve, even after coming out of a QM course, and that it often requires the simultaneous use of many different textbooks. It appears as if this is no longer the case, because Klauber has achieved what others apparently couldn't: a REAL introductory text that doesn't leave large and confusing gaps.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is THE QFT text to buy! 19 mai 2013

I love this book! I'm a physics professor who struggled through QFT for three quarters in graduate school and never really got it. I was buried in the blizzard of math and detail. Student Friendly QFT really is fantastic. I'm about one-quarter the way through it. Dr. Klauber writes in a very clear, natural, and accessible style that is almost as though he is standing right in front of you explaining each step of QFT. He uses a simple organizing tool--he shows how the familiar Lagrangian and Hamiltonian from classical mechanics are the backbone of QM, relativistic QM, and QFT. The whole complexity of the math drops away, and the approach of QFT becomes clear with this simple organizing device. Then he gets into how you actually do stuff with QFT. And again and again he takes the time to do simple confidence-building checks that are simply brilliant, like checking to see if the probability of finding a particle is 100%. Further, he put enough of the math steps in (with terrific little explanatory notes) that it's clear how you move from one step to the next. I'm really impressed that I haven't spotted a single typo in any equation. This book would have made my QFT classes a delight! This book delivers!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 not the typical archive of information 17 avril 2013

I am currently working on a graduate degree biophysics but I have an outside interest in quantum physics. About a year ago I tried several of the "go to" texts in field theory (I not going to name names) but they all seemed to suffer from the same ailment; specifically, they were great texts if you already knew field theory. Dr Klauber's book is one of the few that makes an extensive effort to TEACH field theory rather than serve as a time capsule of information in the corner of the library. A second ailment common to physics texts is brevity. Students often wish for more long-winded texts, which ironically, make the learning process easier and faster. Dr Klauber is one of the few authors that is fully aware of these two ailments and does a wonderful job of curing them in his new text. His text is extremely well organized and makes this difficult subject easier by minimizing the difficulty. For those familiar with other physics texts, Dr Klauber reminds me of two other physics authors, Don Lemons and Dan Fleisch. At least stylistically these authors each create highly organized texts intended to teach. I highly recommend this book as a first introduction to field theory and truly hope that Dr Klauber continues to write texts that bring physics to the masses.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A pedagogically superb textbook 23 avril 2013
Par David Scharf - Publié sur
This text is unique in that it provides a rigorous introduction to quantum field theory in a way that is extremely scrupulous to make the instruction as straightforward and painless as possible. It would be suitable for an upper-level undergraduate course or a first graduate course in QFT. The author does a nice job of explaining the logic of second quantization and the difference between quantum field theory and relativistic quantum mechanics. The presentation of the Schrodinger, Heisenberg and Interaction pictures and their interrelations is very well done. I found his introduction to Feynman diagrams to be outstanding--the transition from the detailed mathematical derivations to the diagrams themselves is the clearest I have seen in any QFT text available today. Also the discussion of renormalization is first-class. His treatment follows the traditional approach, leaving the development of path-integrals to more advanced texts, although his addendum on Path Integrals is a very nice introduction to the subject. All-in-all this is a very fine introduction to QFT and, as a physics professor myself, I recommend it highly both for formal courses and for self-study.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely Wonderful 29 juin 2013

I am shocked at how simple this book makes it to understand such a difficult concept. The antithesis to Goldstein's incoherent blabbering. If the author were to follow up with a graduate mechanics and E&M textbook, I feel physics grad school would be accessible to high schoolers.
