And God said, Let there be light; and there was light. Genesis 1,3 Light is not only the basis of our biological existence, but also an essential source of our knowledge about the physical laws of nature, ranging from the seventeenth century geometrical optics up to the twentieth century theory of general relativity and quantum electrodynamics. Folklore Don't give us numbers: give us insight! A contemporary natural scientist to a mathematician The present book is the second volume of a comprehensive introduction to themathematicalandphysicalaspectsofmodernquantum?eldtheorywhich comprehends the following six volumes: Volume I: Basics in Mathematics and Physics Volume II: Quantum Electrodynamics Volume III: Gauge Theory Volume IV: Quantum Mathematics Volume V: The Physics of the Standard Model Volume VI: Quantum Gravitation and String Theory. It is our goal to build a bridge between mathematicians and physicists based on the challenging question about the fundamental forces in * macrocosmos (the universe) and * microcosmos (the world of elementary particles). The six volumes address a broad audience of readers, including both und- graduate and graduate students, as well as experienced scientists who want to become familiar with quantum ?eld theory, which is a fascinating topic in modern mathematics and physics.

From the reviews:

"This book is the second volume of an impressive monograph that provides introductory accounts of important topics in mathematical physics for graduate students and research workers. It combines theories and applications to demonstrate how the rigorous mathematical point of view helps to clarify and answer questions arising in quantum field theory with a special emphasis on QED. ... Supplemented with an extensive bibliography and historical remarks and citations, this is in my perspective a perfect book for mathematicians and physicists ... ." (Gert Roepstorff, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1155, 2009)

"It is very valuable to allow mathematicians to learn about one of the most successful physical theories, and ... bring more mathematical approaches to QFT under the attention of physicists. ... the book has a very rich up-to-date bibliography, hints for further reading closing each chapter and many historical remarks and quotes. ... Quantum field theory. II. Quantum electrodynamics does a great job in guiding the interested reader through the literature ... at the same time giving an overview of many aspects of quantum electrodynamics." (Walter D. van Suijlekom, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2010 a)

"The book by Zeidler ... is the second volume of a projected six-volume treatise on quantum field theory. The present volume is on quantum electrodynamics ... . The book under review treats so many topics that the reader feels like a tourist on a package tour that visits 19 countries in 5 days, neglecting not a single monument or picture gallery." (William G. Faris, SIAM Review, Vol. 52 (2), 2010)
