I recently finished by Bachelors in Physics from a quite intensive program. We did all the theory to the core (Things that you would expect in grad level courses in the states were done explicitly) - Don't wanna give out the University but it's a German university.
I am extremely good with MIT 804,805 and pretty decent with 806. Had my Bachelor's thesis on Penrose's and Hawkings singularity theorems. Had to do Wald as a self-study (that was rough!)
I have no prior QFT background but I am pretty sure I do satisfy the prerequisites.
I looked around for a few books and lecture notes. Finally shortlisted to these three :
- Quantum field theory for the Gifted amateur, Lancaster and Blundell
- Quantum field theory - Srednicki
- Lecture notes on QFT - David Tong.
I personally love Lancaster. I read the first few chapters and I feel he really goes at an extremely nice pace. (Spoiler : I am not interested in condensed matter, my goal for QFT is to learn it from a perspective of someone who might end up in High energy theory / QFT in Curved spacetime). From this perspective, Srednicki's seems better, am I correct?. I read the first chapter, it was decent. The problems have a solution manual to work out.
I have heard nothing but good thing's about David Tong's notes. I have used this ED notes before and felt it was a bit challenging to read them if you are a beginner.
Any advice on how could I go around self-studying QFT over two months of just QFT (Some QM revision on the side).
