edit History
The concept of field was used implicitly by Niels Henrik Abel and Évariste Galois in their work on the solvability of equations. In 1871, Richard Dedekind , called a set of real or complex numbers which is closed under the four arithmetic operations a "field". In 1881, Leopold Kronecker defined what he called a "domain of rationality", which is indeed a field of polynomials in modern terms. In 1893, Heinrich M. Weber gave the first clear definition of an abstract field. In 1910 Ernst Steinitz published the very influential paper Algebraische Theorie der Körper German : Algebraic Theory of Fields). In this paper he axiomatically studies the properties of fields and defines many important field theoretic concepts like prime field perfect field and the transcendence degree of a field extension Galois, who did not have the term "field" in mind, is honored to be the first mathematician linking

12: Field theory and polynomials
Field theory considers sets, such as the real number line, on which all the usual arithmetic properties hold - those governing addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. The study of multiple fields through Galois theory is important for the study of polynomial equations, and thus has applications to number theory and group theory. Tools in this area can also be used to show certain Euclidean geometry constructions are impossible, and that certain functions have no elementary antiderivative! Specifically, a field is a commutative ring in which every nonzero element is assumed to have a multiplicative inverse. Examples include the real number field R, the complex numbers C, the rational numbers Q, finite fields (the Galois fields with p^n elements for some prime p), the p-adic numbers Q_p, and various fields of functions such as the collection of meromorphic entire functions. All these examples are of characteristic zero except the finite fields (if there is a finite set of 1's which add to zero, the cardinality of the smallest such set is the characteristic, a prime). Some themes of field theory are then immediately apparent.

Field Theory - Kurt Lewin
Kurt Lewin (1890-1947) was a famous, charismatic psychologist who is now viewed as the father of social psychology. Born in Germany, Lewin emigrated to the USA as a result of World War II. Lewin viewed the social environment as a dynamic field which impacted in an interactive way with human consciousness. Adjust elements of the social environment and particular types of psychological experience predictably ensue. In turn, the person's psychological state influences the social field or milieu. Lewin was well known for his terms "life space" and "field theory". He was perhaps even better known for practical use of his theories in studying group dynamics, solving social problems related to prejudice, and group therapy (t-groups). Lewin sought to not only describe group life, but to investigate the conditions and forces which bring about change or resist change in groups. In the field (or 'matrix') approach, Lewin believed that for change to take place, the total situation has to be taken into account. If only part of the situation is considered, a misrepresented picture is likely to develop.

MPBodyInit('index_files') Pedagogic Aids to Quantum Field Theory
Statement of Web Site Purpose
The goal of this web site is to provide assistance in learning quantum field theory (QFT). It is an outgrowth of my own notes on how one could present the subject in a more student friendly manner, compiled when I was first studying QFT over 20 years ago. In that sense, it is a sort of “peer instruction” (a teaching tool of recognized merit.) The material herein is part of a textbook I am presently writing, in which I hope to make learning QFT markedly easier, and thus more efficient, than do typical texts.  The pedagogic principles to be employed in so doing are summarized in a preliminary preface to the text (see Preface As one example of these principles, the presentations herein are NOT concise, but step-by-small-step, with extensive explanation and elaboration. Conciseness, in my experience the source of great inefficiency in learning, and considerable suffering by new students, is much in fashion among the well practiced. I go to great pains to avoid it. As another example, material is often overviewed/summarized in what I call a “Wholeness Chart” (called a “Unifying Chart” in my earlier work), so named because it reveals in chart form the underlying connections that unite various aspects of a given theory into a greater whole.  Learning a computer program line-by-line is immensely harder than learning it with a block diagram of the program, showing major sections and sub-sections, and how they are all interrelated.  The same is true in physics. Wholeness Charts for physics parallel block diagrams for computer programs and, I submit, are just as advantageous for the learning process.  A picture is worth a thousand words, and in my own learning experiences, I have found Wholeness Charts to be invaluable aids that coalesce a lot of different information into one central, easy-to-see, easy-to-understand, and easy-to-reference, framework.

    Algebraic Quantum Field Theory
    Quantum Field Theory (QFT) is the general framework for the description of the physics of relativistic quantum systems, notably of elementary particles. It is the synthesis of Quantum Theory and Special Relativity, supplemented by the principle of Locality in space and time, and by the Spectral Condition in energy and momentum. Algebraic QFT (AQFT) emphasizes the role of algebraic relations among observables which determine, rather than quantum fields proper, a physical system.

14. Unified Field Theory - What Is Unified Field Theory?
Unified field theory, or grand unified theory, or the theory of everything, is an attempt to consolidate the laws of physics into a single framework.

    zSB(3,3) Question: What is Unified Field Theory? Answer: Albert Einstein coined the term "Unified Field Theory," which describes any attempt to unify the fundamental forces of physics between elementary particles into a single theoretical framework. Einstein spent the latter part of his life searching for such a unified field theory, but was unsuccessful. In the past, seemingly different interaction fields (or "forces," in less precise terms) have been unified together. James Clerk Maxwell successfully unified electricity and magnetism into electromagnetism in the 1800s. The field of quantum electrodynamics, in the 1940s, successfully translated Maxwell's electromagnetism into the terms and mathematics of quantum mechanics. The current problem with a fully unified field theory is in finding a way to incorporate gravity (which is explained under Einstein's theory of general relativity ) with the Standard Model that describes the quantum mechanical nature of the other three fundamental interactions. The curvature of spacetime that is fundamental to general relativity leads to difficulties in the quantum physics representations of the Standard Model.

    Quantum Field Theory
    First published Thu Jun 22, 2006 Quantum Field Theory (QFT) is the mathematical and conceptual framework for contemporary elementary particle physics. Since the very beginning of western philosophy reflections about the material world which go beyond the directly observable play a central role in philosophy. Starting with the presocratics it has always been a point of debate what the fundamental characteristics of the material world are. Is everything constantly changing or are there certain permanent features? What is basic and what is merely a matter of perspective and appearance? In the course of time various answers have been given and conflicting views have often been alternating in their predominance. QFT is presently the best starting point for analysing the fundamental features of matter and interactions. In a rather informal sense QFT is the extension of QM (dealing with particles) over to fields. (See the entry on quantum mechanics

    Quantum Field Theory, an Introduction
    122 pages, 5 line figures, 2009 Quantum field theory describes the interaction between elementary particles or quantas. Its method often is named second quantization. In this book the quantum field theory is applied to electrons and photons. This lead-in is chosen because it is instructive and opens the access to other phenomena. The reader becomes acquainted with field operators, Feynman propagators, ultrarelativistic cross sections etc. This publication is conceived as an introduction. The detailed developments and the numerous references to preceding places make it easier to follow. However, knowledge of the elements of relativistic quantum mechanics and electrodynamics is a prerequisite. We use the units of the system SI (MSKA-system), which is familiar to most beginners.
