Quantum field theory – Week 04

Posted in Quantum Field Theory by Index Guy on September 29, 2007

This week was slow in quantum field theoretical aspects. At least to my taste.

We finished the discussion on Lie groups and algebras. Then we considered the Lorentz group and an infinitesimal transformation. From this we derived expressions for the generators of the group, and their algebra. Next week, Poincaré and hopefully canonical quantization.
