David Tong's QFT lecture notes match this course well. Tim Evans' handwritten QFT notes. I will try to keep these updated but changes are now relatively small from year to year.

Individual handouts also see below for supplementary material not handed out Solutions are posted about a week after Problem Sheet material has been covered in lectures or just after the hand in has been made for any relevant Rapid Feedback:. This is a final exam which is the same for undergraduates and postgraduates. The assessment for this course is based only on this exam. All material covered in the lectures is examinable except for the lecture on Fermions. Material in the problem sheets is examinable except for those questions marked as optional.
The questions marked with a star in the problem sheets are core material, those unmarked are important, but I will not assume any knowledge of questions marked optional. I could draw on material contained in the optional questions but this would only to be for the last few marks of a paper and I will not assume any prior knowledge.
Communications in Mathematical Physics
The current course will be reflected in exams from May onwards. Earlier exams will contain some material no longer in the syllabus. However, the structure of the exam will be the same as recent years. That is students will have to answer three out of four questions, each question marked out of Note that the department's policy is to put out solutions for undergraduate exams only every three years. However much of the material is derived from the problem sheets so you should find most answers in their solutions.
Note in particular that a new appendix of formulae has been added for use in the exam in but this may be updated every year.
Students on other courses cannot take this test, but the material may be of use for revision purposes. This test is taken in exam conditions but the marks are only used to provide feedback to QFFF students. The test does not contribute to the final mark for the course. The New Year test is also used to support QFFF students by providing staff with useful information when writing references as many QFFF students have only been here for only a few months though this is not a service provided by most MSc courses.
The test will be made available here as soon as the formal test has finished as the test material may be of use to anyone revising for the final exam. In particular, it covers exactly the same material as detailed for the exam. The January test was three questions with no choice while the final exam requires three questions out of four.
Quantum field theory meets gravity (September 27, )
Both are two hour exams. The questions in the tests are in the style of those I set in the summer QFT exams so past summer exams serve as a good guide for this test and vice-versa. Like the final exam, only tests from onwards will reflect the current syllabus exactly, previous tests may contain material no longer on the syllabus but are provided below in case they are of use.
I adjust the settings for each video by hand hopefully soon after the lecture but sometimes there may be a delay of a day or two to maximise availability within College but I am limited by College policy in what I can do. The access lists are maintained by hand so may not be always up to date so if you have a problem contact me and I will pass your name on. In some cases sound may be poor - do remind me to wear the microphone and to make sure they are not muted. Feedback on these videos were they useful, how did you use them, ideas for improvements welcome.
This list of links below is updated by hand often a few days after lectures so try the main Panopto site for latest videos. Just ignore the fermion lecture for onwards. These are a photcopy of my own notes and are not intended for student use. The simplest result would be that all the forces would have identical properties and that a mechanism called spontaneous symmetry breaking would account for the observed differences.
A Quantum Field Theory
A unified theory of electromagnetic and weak forces, the electroweak theory , has been developed and has received considerable experimental support. It is likely that this theory can be extended to include the strong force. There also exist theories that include the gravitational force, but these are more speculative. Quantum field theory.

The raison d'etre of QFT is explained by starting from the dynamics of a relativistic particle and demonstrating how it leads to the notion of quantum fields. Several interesting topics such as the Schwinger effect, Davies-Unruh effect, Casimir effect and spontaneous symmetry breaking introduce the reader to the elegance and breadth of applicability of field theoretical concepts.
Complementing the conceptual aspects, the book also develops all the relevant mathematical techniques in detail, leading e.
It contains nearly a hundred problems, of varying degrees of difficulty, making it suitable for both self-study and classroom use.
