This service is more advanced with JavaScript available, Part of the Filling an important gap in the literature, this comprehensive text develops conformal field theory from first principles. The text is thus not only an excellent tool for classroom teaching but also for individual study. About this Textbook. At rst glance, it comes across as slightly daunting because it’s big. The aim of these notes is to give a pedagogical introduction to the subject in two and higher dimensions, where standard textbook material will be supplemented by more modern techniques. The review of quantum field theory and statistical mechanics at the begining is excellent and it is of great help if you haven't work with these subjects recently. It introduces Conformal Field Theory at a basic level, Kac-Moody algebras, one-loop partition functions, Superconformal Field Th… This primer develops Conformal Field Theory (CFT) from scratch, whereby CFT is viewed as any conformally-invariant theory that describes a fixed point of a renormalization group flow in quantum field theory. The treatment is self-contained, pedagogical, and exhaustive, and includes a great deal of background material on quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, Lie algebras and affine Lie algebras.
