An expanded and up-dated text examining gauge theories and their symmetries with an emphasis on their physical and technical aspects. New chapters give a systematic introduction to classical field theories and the electroweak theory. Suitable for graduate courses in physics, the only prerequisite being some grounding in quantum field theory.
