Quarks & Leptons
by F. Halzenand A. Martin(though this is not really necessary)http://www.physics.gla.ac.uk/~dmiller/lectures/RQM_2008.pdf
Outline of topics
1.The Schrödinger equation
Non-relativistic quantum mechanics
2.The Klein Gordon Equation
A relativistic wave equation for bosons
3.The Dirac Equation
A relativistic wave equation for fermions
4.Quantum Electrodynamics
The Dirac equation in an electromagnetic potential
5.Scattering and Perturbation Theory
Feynman rules, cross-sections and widths
6.Quantum Chromodynamics
Quarks, gluons and color, renormalisation, running couplings
1. The Schrödinger Equation
Consider a plane wave with energy and momentum :It should not be surprising that these operators do not commute with time and positionrespectively, and indeed obey the usual commutation relations:These values can be extracted using the energy and momentum
