Written by: Warren Siegal (C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics)

This high energy physics textbook was written by Warren Siegal from the C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics, State University of New York at Stony Brook. The text is 885 pages long and broken into three parts – Symmetry, Quanta and Higher Spin. The author  intentionally eschews traditional quantum field theory textbook design in order to present the material in a way he feels is more conducive to learning the material.

From the preface, “This text is meant to cover all the field theory every high energy theorist should know, but not all that any particular theorist might need to know. It is not meant as an introduction to research, but as a preliminary to such course: we try to fill in the cracks that so often lie between standard field theory courses and advanced specialized courses.”
