Available for the first time in paperback, The Quantum Theory of Fields is a self-contained, comprehensive, and up-to-date introduction to quantum field theory from Nobel Laureate Steven Weinberg. The first volume introduces the foundations of quantum field theory, the second volume examines modern applications, and finally, the third volume presents supersymmetry, an area of theoretical physics likely to be at the center of progress in the physics of elementary particles and gravitation. The development is fresh and logical throughout, with each step carefully motivated by what has preceded. The presentation of modern mathematical methods is interwoven with accounts of applications in both elementary particle and condensed matter physics. The three volumes contain much original material, and are enhanced with examples and insights drawn from the author's experience as a leader of elementary particle research.

Exercises are included at the end of each chapter.

Review:

"Provides an impressively lucid and thorough presentation of the subject from this modern viewpoint...Weinberg manages to present difficult topics with richness of meaning and marvellous clarity. Full of valuable insights, his treatise is sure to become a classic." Nature

"Weinberg's Modern Applications goes to the boundaries of our present understanding of the field theory. It is unmatched by any other book on quantum field theory for its depth, generality and definitive character, and it will be an essential reference for serious students and researchers in elementary particle physics." Physics Today

"Steven Weinberg, one of the greatest theoreticians in the past 50 years, has written a magisterial, no-holds-barred account of the theory in all its glory...a definitive text for succeeding generations." New Scientist

"...without doubt goes far beyond the ambition of providing a quick calculational receipe book....The Quantum Theory of Fields is a serious scholarly attempt to lift "Life a little above the level of farce." Foundations of Physics Letters
