I am really getting confused. This term, I am sitting for a QFT 1 lecture and it is what I consider really hard for a physics student! But this is not my problem. My problem is that other than Weinberg, there is absolutely no QFT literature for a modern course.
Our literature recommendation for our course is first of all, Peskin and Schroeder. That is good, but not very detailed. The the other is Itzykson Zuber.
Another problem is that while our course is very excellent which also means that the script is really good (you would have to have listened to very good lecture series on Quantum Mechanics (for the math).), to understand read "between the lines", like representation theory, what is spin, etc., one needs to read Weinberg.
But the style of writing is very strenuous for me.
And thanks to a bad theoretical quantum mechanics lecture, I still really don't know what a spin is! I only know so far that this has something to do with a representation of the Lorentz algebra.
So, do you know some good resources or books which find a good way between the physics and the mathematics?
