Thisis a textbook that derives the fundamental theories of physics from symmetry.

It starts by introducing, in a completely self-contained way, all mathematical tools needed to use symmetry ideas in physics. Thereafter, these tools are put into action and by using symmetry constraints, the fundamental equations of Quantum Mechanics, Quantum Field Theory, Electromagnetism, a

Alexander Temerev
So, this is a textbook on modern physics, probably _the_ textbook, the only one of its kind. It starts with two postulates of special relativity and derives nearly everything else, principles of quantum mechanics included. If “math is the part of physics where experiments are cheap”, as Vladimir Arnold used to say, then physics is the part of math validated by expensive experiments, but math nonetheless. Here you’ll get the comprehensive review of this part of math, leaving you with enough time ...more

Particle Physics is tough. Math heavy, confusing notations, equipped with a complicated and abstract framework called Quantum Field Theory.

QFT is known as being one of the hardest subjects to learn in physics, partly because of the standard literature (Peskin & Schroeder, Zee, etc) are rough, and require full understanding of graduate QM and electrodynamics.

The ideia of this book to approach (at least introduce) to the ideia of quantum fields is NOT being a QFT book. Parting from two simple post
