Quantum physics and special relativity theory were two of the greatest breakthroughs in physics during the 20th century and contributed to paradigm shifts in physics. This book combines these two discoveries to provide a complete description of the fundamentals of relativistic quantum physics, guiding the reader from relativistic quantum mechanics to basic quantum field theory. It gives a detailed treatment of the subject, beginning with the classification of particles, the Klein–Gordon equation and the Dirac equation. Exercises and problems are featured at the end of most chapters.
