Review

"An immense amount of valuable material on recent developments. The development of classical supersymmetry by Deligne and collaborators is careful and systematic ... masterful treatment ... the book is a magnificent achievement." ---- SIAM Review

These articles are great. They do well in delineating the conceptual and rigorous frameworks of the subjects.

Included are exercises (and solutions) culminating from the problem sessions held at Quantum Field Theory program at IAS.

Physicists interested in the mathematical aspects of quantum field/string theory would do well to read these volumes as well.

Deserving, in my opinion, more than 5 stars -- many more!!

Together with its complementary Vol. 2, THIS book is the one to read right after one learns the standard tricks of the trade, from a "physicist's book" like Peskin/Schroeder or Ryder, or even Weinberg. Granted, that Weinberg, in his 3 volume tome, does cover QFT to a tremendous detail and commendable mathematical rigour. But there is still a mathematical void that Weinberg leaves. This book, written by some of the most accomplished mathematical physicists of today (Witten, Deligne, Freed, Kazhdan), eliminates that void and puts the reader at the cutting edge of what is known at present in terms of the mathematical foundations of quantum field theory.

For that alone, this book is highly recommended, but only for the physicist who has a strong mathematical bent and curiosity. The coverage of topics is more or less well balanced, and the writing is precise, crisp and clear.

A real book for a real mathematician.

If you are a mathematician learning to apply math to quantum physics, do not go without this book series. It is exceptional!! Mathematically written with variety and depth not met in any other resource that I have seen specifically relating the two.

You will not be unhappy with this, I guarantee it.

<3 <3 this book series.
