As a mathematics student interested in theoretical physics, I found it very hard to study about anomalies in QFT in standard physics texts. They concentrate on particular examples (like chiral anomaly), however, I want to know about general properties of anomalies in a Quantum Field Theory. Do you know of any books, lecture notes, or any other references for a proper general properties of anomalies for a mathematics student?


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!

    $\begingroup$ Bertlmann's Anomalies in quantum field theory is a very solid textbook, for mathematically oriented physicists. $\endgroup$ – AccidentalFourierTransform Jul 26 '18 at 19:11
