Quantum Field Theory, 7.5 hpSecond level
FactsNo available facts
Standard quantum mechanics cannot describe processes where particles are created and annihilated. These are important, both in high energy physics, where elementary particles are created in particle accelerators, and in condensed matter physics where many phenomena are described in terms of quasi particles, which can also be created and destroyed. In both cases, the natural language is quantum field theory, which is introduced in this course.
