Main Question or Discussion Point
Could someone suggest a good book for elementary QFT and particle physics?(I dont know which to read first). I have very little idea about QFT. Could someone also tell me what maths knowledge is required?

Thanks. Any good book for group theory?I think Peskin and Schroder is brilliant.
You'll also need Fourier transforms before you start, and concurrently learning some group theory is helpful. P&S is a good place to start with group theory as well.
It's better to learn it as you go, while doing QFT and particle physics. The books I mentioned introduce a bit of group theory, as much as you need to see the applications in particle physics. You could pick up math books on group theory but you would then have to learn a lot of stuff not used in particle physics before getting to what is required so it's not the nest way to do it (If you do use math books, make sure that you focus on the sections on Lie algebras).Thanks.
