This introduction focuses purely on modern classical field theory, helping graduates and researchers build an understanding of classical field theory methods before embarking on future studies in quantum field theory. It describes various classical methods for fields with negligible quantum effects, for instance electromagnetism and gravitational fields. It focuses on solutions that take advantage of classical field theory methods as opposed to applications or geometric properties. Other fields covered includes fermionic fields, scalar fields and Chern–Simons fields. Methods such as symmetries, global and local methods, Noether theorem and energy momentum tensor are also discussed, as well as important solutions of the classical equations, in particular soliton solutions. aField theory (Physics) cBK c560313d560313 0010406530_140000000000000_N189C708GEN9898198aIITKbIITKd2019-06-10e2g4328.40l2m3o530.14 N189cpA184415r2019-12-30s2019-12-26v5410.50yBK
