    How to interpret the field function Φ in QFT?

    Hi, I have a question that how to interpret the field function Φ in Quantum Field Theory. As I can see, it is an operator through second quantization and the co-ordinate representation no long exist after second quantization. So we cannot regard it as wave function any more. Could...

    What would be the pre-requisites to learn Topological Quantum Field Theory?

    Thank you very much. I am thinking about my future research interest: mathematical relativity, topological QFT, conformal field theory, and maybe statistical physics...

    What would be the pre-requisites to learn Topological Quantum Field Theory?

    Personally, I am interested in Topological Quantum Field Theory. And now I am battling against Quantum Field Theory. I am not sure how much Quantum Field Theory is needed to do Topological Quantum Field Theory. And I am not sure what should be the mathematical pre-requisites of Topological...

    What is internal space/internal symmetry?

    How about SU(3), SU(5)? Are they all internal symmetry?

    What is internal space/internal symmetry?

    One of my questions has been resolved. Spin is considered in angular momentum term, so it should have spacetime variation. Thus, it is in exterior symmetry.

    What is internal space/internal symmetry?

    Hi, I have already been familiar with that exterior symmetry is the spacetime symmetry. Such kind of symmetry has been depicted by Poincare' group. Then I am still find the concept internal space/internal symmetry ambiguous. And I cannot understand why put Spin in exterior symmetry not...

    What is Little Group ?

    What is "Little Group"? In my Quantum Field Theory class, I too often meet with the term "Little Group". Unfortunately, I cannot find a good description of Little Group until now. I just know it is a subgroup of Lorentz Group. Can anyone have any brief description of this concept? Or any...

    List: texts/ideas for BS math/phy to grad school

    A serious student in theoretical physics program should look into John Baez's reading list. http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/books.html Also anyone could find a lovely tutorial material on General Relativity on John Baez's website.

    List: texts/ideas for BS math/phy to grad school

    << unnecessary complete quote of preceding post deleted >> Thank you very much. I should say sorry. But I think your recommendation is oriented to experimentalists or applied physicists.

    Please recommend differential geometry books

    Why not pay attention to John Baez's Recommendation? http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/books.html

    A syllabus of books/literature from calculus to group theory to QFTs

    I think you are in a wrong drama. We can always find a streamlined structure of modern theory. And we can always find short-cut into our cutting edge research. Sometimes those stuffs are only for historical interest. You are wasting your time in advertising those books. For those want to...

    Good physics books for mathematicians

    I am so happy you want to enrich your physics background. You may benefit from this attempt. Why not look into John Baez's Reading List. http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/books.html
