Bjorken And Drell Relativistic Quantum Fields Djvu 13
This course is the first quarter of a 2-quarter graduate-level introduction to relativistic quantum field theory (QFT). The focus is on introducing QFT and on learning the theoretical background and computational tools to carry out elementary QFT calculations, with a few examples from tree-level quantum electrodynamics processes. The course will be broadly based on the first 13 chapters of Matthew Schwartz's ``Quantum Field Theory and the Standard Model''.

Conventional relativistic quantum mechanics, based on the Klein-Gordon equation, does not possess a natural probabilistic interpretation in configuration space. The Bohmian interpretation, in which probabilities play a secondary role, provides a viable interpretation of relativistic quantum mechanics. We formulate the Bohmian interpretation of many-particle wave functions in a Lorentz-covariant way. In contrast with the nonrelativistic case, the relativistic Bohmian interpretation may lead to measurable predictions on particle positions even when the conventional interpretation does not lead to such predictions.
As an alternative approach we present calculations for baryon states built up from single-quark states of sharp spin and isospin coupled to the corresponding total quantum numbers. As a consequence of the wrong spin-isospin dependence of the short-range qq interaction mediated by the chiral meson fields a negative mass splitting between nucleon and delta is found. Implications on other approaches are discussed.
In this work, we report calculation for Compton scattering of a γ-ray vortex with a wave function of Laguerre Gaussian on an electron in the framework of the relativistic quantum mechanics. We consider the coincidence measurement of the scattered photon and the scattered electron from each Compton scattering. The momentum of the scattered photon distributes outside of the reaction plane determined by the incident photon and the scattered electron, and the energy of the scattered photon also distributes, when the scattered angle of the electron is simultaneously measured. These distributions depend on the angular momentum and the node number of the Laguerre Gaussian function of the incident photon. Thus, the coincident measurement for Compton scattering is useful to identify the nature of the vortex photon wave function.
In this paper, we focus our attention on Compton scattering in order to identify γ-ray vortices. We consider the coincident measurement of the scattered photon and electron from each Compton scattering. We calculate the differential cross-section of Compton scattering of γ-ray vortices with a wave function of Laguerre Gaussian (LG)1 on an electron at rest in the framework of the relativistic quantum mechanics. When a photon with the LG wave function propagates along the z-axis, the LG wave function is written as
We consider Compton scattering with a LG wave function photon at the energy k propagating along the z-direction on a rest electron (see Fig. 1). We also assume that the electron is scattered in the zx-plane and that the final photon wave function is the plane wave.
