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.
