Brief content description

This is a follow up course on Quantum Field Theory (QFT). In the first course we aimed to give students the main tools of the discipline and applied them to some introductory topics such as scalar field theory and spinor field theory. In the present course instead we are going to study more advanced materials such as the quantization of theories based on local (gauge) symmetry, i.e. gauge theories. These theories are indeed the main ingredients of the Standard Model of particle physics that describes with amazing precision the interactions of elementary particles.
