Quantum Field Theory - Lecture Notes

While looking through the IAS website for nothing in particular, I had the good fortune to come across the extensive series of lecture notes on quantum field theory linked to above. This ought to prove interesting to those lunatics amongst you who want to learn what QFT is all about in more detail than is provided by Brian Greene's The Elegant Universe. A few words of warning, however: don't expect to get much out of these notes if you don't know what the terms "manifold", "group representation" and "Hilbert space" mean.
