Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everyone,

My university has completely scrapped an undergrad Intro to QFT course and I am essentially left with no choice but to do self-study with no (worst-case scenario) external guidance.

Are there notes or texts that can be used for such a purpose? Would be a nice bonus if there's a taster of SM/BSM stuff at the end as well.

If possible, I'd also like to know your opinions on Weigand's QFT I+II notes as I see it being recommended a lot.

Some educational background, if it's useful:

- QM: Up to Fock space, second quantisation and some QED-lite. No path-integral formulation of QM.
- EM: Up to Lagrangian formulation of EM.
- Very rudimentary understanding of Noether's theorem
- Complex methods: Some idea of how to do contour integrals and whatnot
- No group theory

Thanks in advance!
