Lecture 10: Path Integral Formulation
Posted in Stanford University
In this lecture, Professor Susskind retouches on particle actions through the lagrangian, quantum field theory and path integral formulation.
Lecture 9: Equations of Quantum Field Theory
Posted in Stanford University

Posted in Stanford University
Wrapping up the coverage of the quantum field theory, Professor Leonard Susskind discusses the theory behind angular momentum and the relevant mathematics.
Lecture 6: Diary Equation & Higgs Particles
Posted in Stanford University
Leonard Susskind continues elaborating the subject of quantum field theory, including, the diary equation and the hypothetical Higgs Bosons - the particle responsible for mass.
Lecture 5: Fermions & Energy Conservation
Posted in Stanford University
This lecture continues the discussion of the quantum field theory, focusing on fermions, waves and energy conservation.
Lecture 4: Quantum Fields & Particle Processes
Posted in Stanford University
This Stanford University lecture shows how quantum fields can be used to begin to describe various particle processes.
Lecture 3: What Is A Quantum Field?
Posted in Stanford University
This lecture discusses the properties and structures of quantum fields and describes their relation to particles.
Lecture 2: Quantum Field Theory
Posted in Stanford University
In this lecture Susskind discusses the quantum field theory (QFT), a theoretical framework for constructing quantum mechanical models of systems classically parametrized (represented) by an infinite number of fields.
Lecture 1: Introduction To Particle Physics
Posted in Stanford University
Leonard Susskind gives the introductory lecture of a course that will explore the newest revolutions in particle physics. This class explores the properties of light, particles and the quantum field theory.
