1) The Standard Model: A Primer, C.P. Burgess and G.D. Moore, Cambridge University Press (2006 and updated 2013 to include the Higgs discovery): This graduate textbook uses the Standard Model of particle physics to introduce the techniques of Quantum Field Theory. The intention is to provide in this way both a practical introduction to calculating in field theory, and an introduction to the phenomenology of the Standard Model.
What they’re saying about The Standard Model: A Primer “The Standard Model is a bold, fresh book about attraction, force, unbridled energy and the world of international models. In a nutshell: anything but standard.”
2) Introduction to Effective Field Theories, C.P. Burgess, Cambridge University Press (to appear 2019): This graduate textbook develops thet tools of Effective Field Theory and provides applications of their use throughout a wide variety of physical situations. (Examples are drawn from particle physics, gravity, precision atomic physics, superconductivity, the quantum Hall effect, fluids and particles moving within media.) The intention is to provide in this way both a practical introduction to using effective field theory, and a sense of the unity of perspective that the EFT viewpoint brings to physics in general.
What they’re saying about Introduction to Effective Field Theories “History is replete with the names of those who have left their marks developing effective use of fields: from Napoleon’s genius on the battlefield to Tom Brady’s downfield coverage. This book draws on this rich history to attempt something bigger and more ambitious than all of these put together. Perhaps the most effective use of fields since the agricultural revolution.”
