Methods of Contemporary Gauge Theory
This book provides a thorough introduction to quantum theory of gauge fields. Emphasis is placed on four non-perturbative methods: path integrals, lattice gauge theories, the 1/N expansion, and reduced matrix models, which have important contemporary applications. The book uses a novel approach to gauge theories based on path-dependent phase factors known as the Wilson loops, and provides comprehensive coverage of large-N Yang-Mills theory.
