Mathematical Requirments for QFT

  1. Oct 15, 2009 #1
    Can anybody give or link me to a relatively complete list of mathematical requirements for being able to fully grasp Quantum Field Theory at an advanced level? This may be a lot to ask but I've learned quantum mechanics (mainly from the Cohen-Tennoudji text) and whenever I've tried to access any graduate texts on QFT or Relativistic Quantum Mechanics the math level rockets up with no seeming intermediaries. HELP!

    NOTE: Another thing that would help is referral to a textbook that actually has the extra math taught in it.

    Try Srednicki (draft copy available free online, google to find it). It's math level (and level of rigor) is pretty low.
