Lecture 10: Path Integral Formulation
Posted in Stanford University
In this lecture, Professor Susskind retouches on particle actions through the lagrangian, quantum field theory and path integral formulation.
Lecture 9: Equations of Quantum Field Theory
Posted in Stanford University
In this lecture Leonard Susskind tackles the motion of fields containing particles and quantum field theory. He also shows how basic processes are coded by a Lagrangian.
