If we divide our physical theories (somewhat artificially) into theories of matter and theories of spacetime, quantum field theory (qft) is our most fundamental empirically successful theory of matter.

A unique approach to quantum field theory, with emphasis on the principles of renormalization quantum field theory is frequently approached from the perspective of particle physics this book adopts a more general point of view and includes applications of condensed matter physics written by a. This text offers a balanced treatment of quantum field theory, providing both formal presentation and numerous examples it begins with the standard quantization of electrodynamics, culminating in the perturbative renormalization, and proceeds to functional methods, relativistic bound states, broken symmetries, nonabelian gauge. Idea what is called locally covariant perturbative algebraic quantum field theory (brunetti-fredenhagen 00, brunetti-fredenhagen-verch 03) is a formulation of local perturbative quantum field theory on general spacetimes (hence on general classical background field configurations of the field theory of gravity) which is both.
