About this product
- DescriptionPath integrals provide a powerful method for describing quantum phemena. This book introduces the quantum mechanics of particles that move in curved space by employing path integrals and then using them to compute amalies in quantum field theories. The authors start by deriving path integrals for particles moving in curved space and their supersymmetric generalizations. They then discuss the regularization schemes essential to constructing and computing these path integrals. This topic is used to introduce regularization and rermalization in quantum field theories in a wider context. These methods are then applied to discuss and calculate amalies in quantum field theory. Such amalies provide ermous constraints in the search for physical theories of elementary particles, quantum gravity and string theories. An advanced text for researchers and graduate students of quantum field theory and string theory, the first part is also a stand-alone introduction to path integrals in quantum mechanics.
