Introduction to Quantum Field Theory and Applications

Lecturer: Professor Dr. Mirjam Cveti─Ź
University of Pennsylvania , Philadelphia, USA
CAMTP , University of Maribor


Perturbative techniques (Feynman Diagrams) in interacting quantum field theory are developed for calculations of scattering processes. Both the tree-level and the systematic approach to loop corrections (renomalized perturbation) are developed. Primary applications will be to Quantum Electrodynamics, and possibly to the Standard Model of electroweak and strong interactions.

The lecture of the 1st Spring School will take place at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, University of Maribor, Koroska 160, SI-2000 Maribor, Slovenia, in room 0/103. The lectures will be delivered every day Monday 3 June to Friday 7 June from 10:00 - 12:00 and 14:00 - 16:00. In total 20 academic hours. In the second part of the lecture course discussions in small groups will be possible. The advanced participants will have the opportunity to present a short seminar on their own work (15 minutes).
The lecture course is aimed at rather broad audience, in the first place the graduate students of high energy physics, but also other interested graduate students of theoretical physics, postdocs and other interested researchers. The registration fee amounts 100 EUR per person. All local and travel expenses must be covered by the participants themselves, and the accommodation must be organized by themselves as well.
In order to attend each participant should register by sending an email with all the contact addresses to the coordinator Prof.Dr. Marko Robnik at: Registration deadline is Friday 24 May 2013. But we advise all potential participants to register as soon as possible, as the number of participants is limited to 40.
