This publication comprises the lectures for a two-semester path on quantum box concept, and as such is gifted in a fairly casual and private demeanour. The path starts off with relativistic one-particle structures, and develops the fundamentals of quantum box idea with an research of the representations of the Poincaré staff. Canonical quantization is conducted for scalar, fermion, Abelian and non-Abelian gauge theories. Covariant quantization of gauge theories can also be performed with a close description of the BRST symmetry. The Higgs phenomenon and the traditional version of electroweak interactions also are constructed systematically. Regularization and (BPHZ) renormalization of box theories in addition to gauge theories are mentioned intimately, resulting in a derivation of the renormalization crew equation. moreover, chapters -- one at the Dirac quantization of limited structures and one other on discrete symmetries -- are integrated for completeness, even supposing those should not lined within the two-semester path.

Contents: Relativistic Equations; options of the Dirac Equation; houses of the Dirac Equation; Representations of Lorentz and Poincaré teams; unfastened Klein Gordon box thought; Self-Interacting Scalar box conception; complicated Scalar box thought; Dirac box conception; Maxwell box concept; Dirac approach for limited structures; Discrete Symmetries; Yang turbines concept; BRST Invariance and Its effects; Higgs Phenomenon and the normal version; Regularization of Feynman Diagrams; Renormalization concept; Renormalization staff and Equation.
