Is there a reasonably detailed and systematic exposition of the theory of instantons in non-abelian gauge theories?


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!

  • $\begingroup$ @Avantgarde : Coleman is not detailed enough for me. I will have a look at Shifman’s book. Thank you. $\endgroup$ – MKO Apr 8 at 0:42
  • $\begingroup$ I would say, probably the most complete reference is the Manton-Sutcliffe. $\endgroup$ – MannyC Apr 8 at 2:50
