PHY424: Relativistic quantum mechanics and quantum field theory

        [Cr:4, Lc:3, Tt:1, Lb:0]

Knowledge of the content of PHY302, PHY303 and PHY306 is essential to follow this course.

Course Outline

Goal: To trace the path from single particle Non-relativistic Quantum Mechanics (QM) to the necessity of many body interpretations of its relativistic generalizations. Introduction of Quantum field theory as a comprehensive language to describe many body relativistic quantum systems which resolves the paradoxes of single body Relativistic QM.
