  • Michael Dütsch,

    From classical field theory to perturbative quantum field theory

    Progress in Mathematical Physics,

    Birkhaeuser 2019

    (publisher page)

which is an introductory textbook on perturbative quantum field theory in its mathematically precise formulation known as perturbative algebraic quantum field theory, based on causal perturbation theory.

The book amplifies the axiomatization of retarded products over the (equivalent) time-ordered products and includes a special focus on master Ward identities.
