Lectures: Ben Allanach

NSTIA Mathematical Methods III (Course B): 2016-

A first year course for mathematically minded scientists covering linear algebra, vector spaces and partial differential equations. Examples sheets and printed lecture notes can be found on moodle.

Quantum Field Theory: 2016-

A part III (master's) level maths course, largely based on the excellent notes by David Tong and predecessors. Information for examples class tutors
  • Use his printed notes as a reference and
  • My other notes on cross sections and decay rates
  • Videos of David Tong's lectures delivered at the Perimeter Institute. It is a very similar course on the whole, although because the lectures were longer in duration, he gave 14 rather than 24. (He didn't lecture cross sections and decay rates, however).
  • Examples sheets (3P1)

Vector Calculus IA: 2014-2015

A part IA (first year) course. The lectures are heavily based on those by Jonathan Evans. Try our printed notes.

Supersymmetry 2010-2015

This is a part III course in the Cambridge mathematical tripos. Please advise me of any mistakes etc by email.

Beyond The Standard Model: 2016,2018

A set of 3 1.25 hour lectures and discussion sessions given to over 100 experimental PhD students at the CERN-JINR European School of High-Energy Physics

Quantum Field Theory: 2013

See a few introductory lectures that I gave for the CERN Summer School Programme (videos/PDFs). See the classic lectures by Dave Tong, whose notes my lectures were based on.

Principles of Quantum Mechanics 2009-2013

This is a part II course in the Cambridge mathematical tripos. The lectures/examples sheets are heavily based on the ones written by Jonathan Evans.

See the nice book by Binney and Skinner also. If you want to watch some lectures on this kind of course, watch the really excellent ones by James Binney.

The Standard Model 2004-2009

This is a part III course in the Cambridge mathematical tripos. Please advise me of any mistakes etc by email. The notes are heavily based on the ones written and evolved by previous lecturers: Ian Drummond, Hugh Osborn, Jonathan Evans, Simon Dalley and Robert Thorne.
Other Standard Model notes: Hugh Osborn
