ACPFT BOOK:
Advanced Concepts in Particle and Field Theory
(Cambridge University Press, July 31, 2015, harcover) [ CUP ] [ A ] [ B ]
   
   
ERRATA:
There are cracks in everything; that’s how the light gets in. ” – Leonard Cohen
“p.n” = page n, “P.n” = paragraph n, “l.n” = line n, “S.n” = section nn > 0 is counted downward/forward,  n < 0 upward/backward.

If you notice any kind of error in the book, please, do let me know!

  p.73, Digression 2.7, l. –4: “ relation ” → “ relations ” (plural)
  p.144, l.–1; p.560, l.2: “ Saharov ” → “ Sakharov ” (Western-standard spelling)
  p.329, l.1 under Eq. (9.45) and subsequently: “ energy-momentum tensor density ” → “ energy-momentum density tensor ”
        (the quantity defined in Eq. (9.45) is a tensor—not a tensor density as defined in Definition B.2 on p.522; its components are densities in the other sense of the word, i.e.,  they are “some quantity per unit volume”)
  p.518, Eq. (B.80c), the 2nd relative sign (multiplying the 3rd term): “” → “ + ”

ADDITION:
  p.525, Table C.1 needs the updates:
» 2013: François Englert and Peter W. Higgs, “for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles…”
» 2015: Takaaki Kajita and Arthur B. McDonald, “for the discovery of neutrino oscillations, which shows that neutrinos have mass”
