The approach to quantum field theory in this book is part way between building a mathematical model of the subject and presenting the mathematics that physicists actually use. It starts with the need to combine special relativity and quantum mechanics and culminates in a basic understanding of the standard model of electroweak and strong interactions. The book is divided into five parts: 1. Canonical quantization of scalar fields; 2. Weyl, Dirac and vector fields; 3. Functional integral quantization; 4. The standard model of the electroweak and strong interactions; 5. Renormalization. This should be a useful reference for anybody with interests in quantum theory and related areas of function theory, functional analysis, differential geometry or topological invariant theory.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...a good and unique book." Choice
"This voluminous text covers essentially all the basics of quantum field theory and more, in a pleasing style and a nice, consistent notation, without skating over difficult points. I can honestly recommend it as an excellent teaching text." Mathematical Reviews
"...a very solid pedagogical textbook expounding quantum field theory, as applied to relativistic particle physics...a careful and comprehensive introduction to the physics of the Standard Model together with the mathematical background required to understand it." Siam Review
