Title  Special theory of relativity: A Mathematical Exposition 
Author(s)  Anadijiban Das 
Publication  New York, SpringerVerlag, 1993. 
Description  xii, 214p. 
Series  (Universitext) 
Abstract Note  Based on courses taught at the University of Dublin, Carnegie Mellon University, and mostly at Simon Fraser University, this book presents the special theory of relativity from a mathematical point of view. It begins with the axioms of the Minkowski vector space and the flat spacetime manifold. Then it discusses the kinematics of special relativity in terms of Lorentz tranformations, and treats the group structure of Lorentz transformations. Extending the discussion to spinors, the author shows how a unimodular mapping of spinor (vector) space can induce a proper, orthochronous Lorentz mapping on the Minkowski vector space. The second part begins with a discussion of relativistic particle mechanics from both the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian points of view. The book then turns to the relativistic (classical) field theory, including a proof of Noether's theorem and discussions of the KleinGordon, electromagnetic, Dirac, and nonabelian gauge fields. The final chapter deals with recent work on classical fields in an eightdimensional covariant phase space.

Title  Structural aspects of quantum field theory Vol. 1 
Author(s)  Gerhard Grensing 
Publication  New Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 2013. 
Description  xxxii, 849p. 
Abstract Note  This book is devoted to the subject of quantum field theory. It is divided into two volumes. The first can serve as a textbook on the main techniques and results of quantum field theory, while the second treats more recent developments, in particular the subject of quantum groups and noncommutative geometry, and their interrelation.
The first volume is directed at graduate students who want to learn the basic facts about quantum field theory. It begins with a gentle introduction to classical field theory, including the standard model of particle physics, general relativity, and also supergravity. The transition to quantized fields is performed with path integral techniques, by means of which the oneloop renormalization of a selfinteracting scalar quantum field, of quantum electrodynamics, and the asymptotic freedom of quantum chromodynamics is treated. In the last part of the first volume, the application of path integral methods to systems of quantum statistical mechanics is covered. The book ends with a rather detailed investigation of the fractional quantum Hall effect, and gives a stringent derivation of Laughlin's trial ground state wave function as an exact ground state.
