**Quantum Field Theory as a Faithful Image of Nature**

by Hans Christian Ã–ttinger

**Publisher**: arXiv 2016**Number of pages**: 130

**Description**:

This book can be used as a textbook on quantum field theory for students of physics or as a monograph for philosophers and physicists interested in the epistemological foundations of particle physics. The benefits of an approach resting on philosophical foundations is twofold: the reader is stimulated to critical thinking and the entire story flows very naturally, thus removing all the mysteries from quantum field theory.

**Group Field Theories**

by

**Thomas Krajewski**-

**arXiv**

Group field theories are particular quantum field theories defined on D copies of a group which reproduce spin foam amplitudes on a space-time of dimension D. In these lecture notes, we present the general construction of group field theories.
