Many courses on modern quantum field theory focus on the formulation and application of field theory, leaving topics related to symmetry underdeveloped. This leads to students often having an incomplete understanding of symmetries. Filling this gap, Symmetries and Symmetry Breaking in Field Theory sheds light on various aspects of symmetry in field

Introduction. Elements of Classical Field Theory. Global Symmetries. Local Symmetry and Constraint Theory. Functional Integral Formulation of Field Theory. Nonabelian Gauge Symmetry. Discrete Symmetries. Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking. Breaking of Chiral Symmetry on Quantization: The Anomaly. Index.
