I have written up some notes which may be helpful as a background in mathematical techniques, and some that give more technical details of things presented in the lecture notes without all the details.

These are notes on mathmatical techniques which should be part of your background. Some are not directly relevant to this course.

Here are some notes that go a bit beyond what we discussed in class.

Here are some notes on more advanced topics in QFT
