    Hello All,

    Hendrik van Hees just started a qft course. Here's his announcement:



    We just started an online qft theory course, reading along Zee's
    textbook. Soon, it will be provided as a an online course at the
    supersymmetry web page:

    http://www.superstringtheory.com/

    Since the webmaster of the page is busy at the moment, it will appear
    there sometimes in October.

    Since we didn't want to loose to much time, we already started as a
    Yahoo Group. That's not as good as on the superstring theory page, but
    better than nothing:

    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/qft/

    In the file folder of this group you find also my own qft script (also
    downloadable from my home page) and the first set of exercises (dealing
    with one-particle non-relativistic qt of the harmonic oscillator.

    If you are interested, you are heartily invited to join us!

    I would really not get involved in string theory right now. Try being neutral. It is a difficult field and has not earned much attention. I'm not sold yet on LQG, but, it has a lot more going for it at the moment.

    It's not string theory, it's quantum field theory. It just happens to be at the superstringtheory site.

    By the way, I'm in!

    I just joined as well.. I'm in it more for the challenge of solving problems that I may or may not have done before, and seeing if I can do them cold turkey without too much help from the text...

    But yea looks fun so far, at least until my vacation is up in a week or two.

    Hi
    Please start the Quantum mechanics 101 course.
    I sent a mail to the instructor(as is given in the stringtheory site) but recieved no reply
    Thanks in advance

    I also just joined in... Let's upgrade and refresh the old-QFT courses from university...

    regards

    Hi,

    I was the instructor :-)
    Sorry, I might have missed some messages concerning that course. I was not really planning right away to start this course again, because I wanted to concentrate on the QFT course given by Hendrik. But I will do it some time later.
    Anyway, for the moment the superstringtheory site is a bit in a mess. I'd prefer Patricia (the webmaster there) to clean it up a bit, which she promised to do somewhere in october.



    cheers,
    Patrick.

    However, I can add that if you want to read Sakurai and have questions (especially about the first 3 chapters, or the exercises, which was treated in QM101) you can always come here and ask about it. Also, I had set up a page with some extra material concerning that course, it is at:

    cheers,
    Patrick.

    Thanks vanesch

    Thanks vanesch
    I am off to learn some complex linear vector spaces and jump into the course
    Thank you.
