Quantum Field Theory (QFT)

EJTP Special Issue 2008


At present, Quantum Field Theory is the most complete description of physical world, it is the necessary condition  which any future unification theory has to pass throught. The conceptual richness of QFT is counterbalanced by many unsolved questions and a variety of different approaches in answering them. In this anthology we aim to investigate the "ontological" and epistemological sides of such world description: what is a particle? What is the relationship between Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Field Theory? What is the observer's role in QFTs? What is the role of the renormalization group in complex systems' physics? What is the connection between information theory, quantum computing and QFTs? These are the questions we asked to an exceptional team of authors listed below.
