**Course Summary**

Quantum field theory combines classical field theory with quantum mechanics and provides analytical tools to understand many-particle and relativistic quantum systems. This course aims to introduce the ideas and techniques of quantum field theory. I will use examples drawn mainly from condensed matter physics to illustrate the ideas and application of quantum field theory.
