These lecture notes and course material is based on M. Sc. IIIrd semester elective course on Quantum Field Theory given at IIIT Bhubaneswar during the autumn semester of 2016 and 2017. The course in the year 2016 the course was conducted jointly with Dr. Chndarsekhar Bhamidipati.

In the first part of the course the aim of both the courses was to make best use of students' background in Quantum Mechanics and teach them simplest low order calculations of life times and decay rates and cross sections before the Mid Semester Examinations.

Thus  an introduction to S matrix and Wick's Theorem and Feynman diagrams was postponed to the second half of the course.

In the second part of the course after the MidSemester Examinations,  I  aimed to  cover standard Dyson Wick perturbation theory and to be able to  present  calculation of Schwinger's result of anomalous magnetic moment of electron.
