Providing a new perspective on quantum field theory, this book gives a pedagogical and up-to-date exposition of non-perturbative methods in relativistic quantum field theory and introduces the reader to modern research work in theoretical physics. It describes in detail non-perturbative methods in quantum field theory, and explores two- dimensional and four- dimensional gauge dynamics using those methods. The book concludes with a summary emphasizing the interplay between two- and four- dimensional gauge theories. Aimed at graduate students and researchers, this book covers topics from two-dimensional conformal symmetry, affine Lie algebras, solitons, integrable models, bosonization, and 't Hooft model, to four-dimensional conformal invariance, integrability, large N expansion, Skyrme model, monopoles and instantons. Applications, first to simple field theories and gauge dynamics in two dimensions, and then to gauge theories in four dimensions and quantum chromodynamics (QCD) in particular, are thoroughly described.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... Non-Perturbative Field Theory will have enduring value as a comprehensive reference.' Contemporary Physics
"... highly recommendable... This book fills a gap in the literature on non-pertubative aspects of field theories by bringing together many topics which are usually covered only separately in different books. Thus, this book is definitely a must-read for people active in this field." Axel Maas, Mathematical Reviews
