It's surprisingly hard to find any resources on this on the internet. I'd want a suitable for self-study introduction to the QFD for someone with only a basic understanding of Quantum Field Theory. While it's not a requirement, it would be good if it was freely available online.


Before answering, please see our policy on resource recommendation questions. Please write substantial answers that detail the style, content, and prerequisites of the book, paper or other resource. Explain the nature of the resource so that readers can decide which one is best suited for them rather than relying on the opinions of others. Answers containing only a reference to a book or paper will be removed!

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, it is true, even after two decades and some the world wide web can not quite compete with a well kept scientific library. I guess this would warrant a physical visit to one of those ancient, long forgotten places with the slightly musty smell? ;-) $\endgroup$ – CuriousOne Sep 10 '15 at 19:19
  • $\begingroup$ I don't have any scientific libraries near where I live, though. $\endgroup$ – Qwedfsf Sep 10 '15 at 19:55
  • $\begingroup$ That is a serious problem. I mean it, that is a serious problem because the most valuable resources are not online and there are no signs that they will come online. Your best bet is a literature search and whatever free papers you can scrounge on arxiv and from the few journals that are available for free. $\endgroup$ – CuriousOne Sep 10 '15 at 20:10
  • $\begingroup$ @Qwedfsf How about "Gauge Theory of Weak Interactions" by Greiner? I think that it is pretty much entry-level. There is also "Gauge Theories of the Strong and Electroweak Interaction" by Böhm, Denner and Joos, which is a very good book, but starting on a slightly higher level. $\endgroup$ – vsht Sep 14 '15 at 17:01
